Are Brick and Woodbridge Bank Heists Linked?
Robberies at banks in Brick Township and Woodbridge in January are now being scrutinized by investigators to determine if they were pulled off by the same suspect.
The OceanFirst branch on Adamston Road was held up January 4. Police say there is a strong resemblance to the suspect captured in surveillance images while sticking up a bank in Woodbridge this month.
Police describe the Brick suspect as a white male, about six feet in height and 180 pounds. He wore a black baseball cap, dark hooded coat, light grey shirt, blue jeans and dark sneakers. Authorities say he fled in a green car, possibly a Mazda. No injuries resulted.
Investigators ask you to compare the images and contact them if you recognize him.
Brick Township PD Detective Thomas Cooney is handling the proge along with the Federal Bureau of Investigation in Red Bank. Cooney can be reached at 732-262-1120. The FBI number is 732-741-0006.
