Camden City, N.J. (March 29, 2021)--– Detectives have made an arrest in a 2017 bank robbery in Cherry Hill, according to Acting Camden County Prosecutor Jill S. Mayer and Cherry Hill Police Chief William “Bud” Monaghan.

Phillip Thomas, 39, of Elkton, M.D., has been charged with one count of second-degree Robbery.

On Feb. 26, 2017, officers responded to the TD Bank on the 1700 block of Route 70 East around 11:16 a.m. for a report of a robbery. Bank employees told police a man passed a note to a teller demanding cash.

Surveillance footage captured the man leaving with an undisclosed amount of money and driving away in a silver minivan. Footage of the incident was released to the public, but detectives said no one came forward to identify the man. In 2021, new information was received, which led them to identify Thomas as the person responsible.

Thomas was charged in Maryland on March 28. He is currently being held at the Cecil County Detention Center, where he’s awaiting extradition to New Jersey.

All persons charged with crimes are presumed innocent until proven guilty in a court of law.
