James Warthen, 22, of Pemberton Township is described as black, male, about 5’8″ in height and 155 pounds in weight. Investigators urge anyone who spots him to avoid approaching him or trying to detain him.

Bail in advance of his apprehension has been set at $100,000 with no option for release on payment of 10 percent.

Warthen and a juvenile accomplice are suspected of robbing a victim while keeping the muzzle of a gun pressed against the victim’s head near a Mexican market.

According to information from the office of Ocean County Prosecutor Joseph Coronato, Plumsted police last Sunday arrested a Pemberton juvenile at a Wawa on Jacobstown Road in New Egypt, in connection with the holdup.

Plumsted Police Detectives Brant Uricks and Jason Reilly are taking confidential information at 609-758-7185.
