Two states seek bank robber six months later

Two states seek bank robber six months later

NEWTOWN TWP., Pa. - Police in New Jersey and Pennsylvania are working together to catch a bank robber and now they're asking for your help.

Back in December video surveillance captured an image of a man robbing a New Jersey Bank.

A week later police say cameras caught the same man robbing a Bucks County bank.

Despite the clearly visible face in the picture, police still can't solve the case.

Newtown Township Detective Chris Bush says cameras caught the man robbing two banks within a week's span last December.

He robbed the Monument Bank in Newtown Township just two days before Christmas.

"He presents the teller with a demand note. He threatens he has a weapon, but has none," Bush said.

Bush adds that the man made out with $3,000. His get-a-way car was a silver Volkswagen bug.

One week prior to the Monument Bank robbery, up in Lopatcong Township, New Jersey, Bush believes camera's caught the same man robbing a PNC Bank.

He wore different clothes, but had the same M.O.

"He says he has a weapon and he's demanding the cash. He is also instructing the tellers to hurry it up," Bush said

Despite the head-on shot, now six months later police in both Bucks County and New Jersey still don't know who the man is.

"I thought with the quality of the video that he would have been identified," Bush admits.

Police are hoping a citizen can help them crack the case and ID this face.

The man faces several felony charges including robbery.

If you do know who this person is Newtown Township Police ask that you call them at 215-579-1000. The call is anonymous.
