Stafford Township Police responded to the hold up alarm at the Wells Fargo in Stafford Square Plaza on Route 72 East in Manahawkin Friday afternoon. 

A man wearing a gray hooded sweatshirt and black aviator sunglasses entered the Wells Fargo and began to write a note at the banking slip counter. When bank tellers demanded the man remove the sunglasses and hood but he instead fled with the note.

He ran west through the Shoprite parking lot, and bank tellers activated the alarm resulted in police response as the subject matched the description of the bank robber from the Chase Bank on January 18th.

Stafford Police does believe it is the same suspect. Anyone with information is asked to contact Detective Drew Smith of the Stafford Township Police Department at 609-597-1189 ext. 8435.
