Sovereign Bank Woodlynne Branch Robbed /cnbnews

WOODLYNNE NJ--February 27, 2013 The Camden County Prosecutor’s Office and the FBI are seeking the public’s assistance to identify and locate the subjects responsible for today’s armed robbery of the Sovereign Bank branch located at 2400 Mount Ephraim Avenue in Woodlynne, New Jersey.

At approximately 10:20 a.m., the subjects entered the bank, confronted a teller in the lobby, and displayed a firearm. They followed the teller to the counter. After obtaining an undisclosed amount of cash, the subjects fled the area of the bank, apparently on foot.

The two male subjects are described as approximately 5’6” to 5’8” tall with medium builds. They concealed their identities with disguises. One wore a rubber Halloween-type mask, yellow PSE&G hardhat, charcoal gray hooded sweatshirt, black jacket, and dark-colored gloves. The other covered much of his face with a black scarf or similar item; he wore a light-colored hooded sweatshirt, a black North Face puffy winter vest, and sunglasses.

These subjects are considered armed and dangerous. Anyone with information about this robbery or these subjects is urged to call the Camden County Prosecutor’s Office at 856-225-8400 or the FBI at 856-795-9556. There may be a reward for information leading to these subjects’ capture; tipsters can remain anonymous.

Four photos from the bank’s security cameras are below.
