The suspect got away with a black cash register and was last seen fleeing toward Gerard Street in the direction of the Aberdeen and Matawan borders, Gramiccioni said.

Anyone with information is urged to call Jose Cruz with the Prosecutor’s Office at 732-921-9733 or Keyport police Detective Shannon Torres at 732-264-0706.
