$1M Bail for Monmouth Armed Robbery Suspect
A Tinton Falls 20-year-old is held on $1,000,000 bail, charged with shooting and stabbing a robbery victim Saturday in Neptune Township.
Cameron D. Keyes is charged with first-degree counts of attempted murder, attempted robbery and conspiracy to commit robbery, as well as second- and third-degree weapons counts filed by the office of acting Monmouth County Prosecutor Chris Grammiccioni.
Keyes was given no option for release on payment of 10 percent by Monmouth Superior Court Judge Angela White Dalton, who also set a bail source hearing and no victim contact as bail conditions.
According to investigators, the crime unfolded around 2 PM on June 14 in Neptune's Sunshine Village enclave, near the Route 18 pedestrian walkway.
The 23-year-old victim from Neptune Township is hospitalized in stable condition, authorities said.
The attempted murder charge would carry a sentence of up to 20 years in a state prison on conviction, with a provision to serve at least 85 percent of the term under New Jersey's No Early Release Act, prosecutors said.
The second-degree count translates to a sentence as high as 10 years, and the third-degree charge bears a three-to-five-year sentence, before parole eligibility.
Aspects of the case are still under investigation and information is still being sought. Detective Scott Samis of the Prosecutor's Major Crimes Bureau is handling the case and can be reached at 800-533-7443. Detective Sergeant Robert Baldwin of the Neptune Township Police can be reached at 732-988-8000.
