NYC Man Accused of Bank Robberies in Fort Lee, New Jersey

Need a Fort Lee Bank Robbery Lawyer

Being accused of robbing a bank puts you in dire straights in Fort Lee, New Jersey, and anywhere else in the Bergen County area. The laws against robbery in NJ are extremely strict and you can face decades of imprisonment if the state successfully proves a robbery case against you. Beyond the immediate impact of being held in jail while your case is ongoing, you actually face up 20 years in prison for a first degree robbery charge. Typically a first degree bank robbery charge applies in cases where the person is armed at the time, uses force or threatens to use force on someone, or someone is injured in the course of the robbery. If you have been accused of bank robbery in Fort Lee, you need an aggressive defense lawyer on your side. Our team of skilled criminal defense lawyers knows how to challenge a robbery charge and what to look for in the evidence that may help to get your case dismissed or to reduce the consequences you’re exposed to. Contact us now at (201)-556-1570 for a free consultation about your robbery charges in Bergen County.

Accused of Robbing a Bank in Fort Lee, NJ

Police in Fort Lee NJ recently arrested a man accused of committing multiple bank robberies. The suspect is a 29-year-old man from New York City. According to law enforcement, he robbed two banks located in Fort Lee. This suspect faces numerous criminal charges, including first degree armed robbery, third degree terroristic threats, and fourth degree obstruction of administration of law.

The first bank robbery occurred a couple of weeks ago. The second robbery occurred recently, with the suspect allegedly holding up the Bank of New Jersey branch located on West Street in Fort Lee, NJ. According to authorities, the suspect entered the building a short time before 12:00 p.m., approached a bank teller, and handed the worker a threatening note. After getting the cash, the suspect reportedly ran out of the bank and fled the scene.

Fort Lee police officers canvassed the area in search of the suspect. Sometime later, a detective spotted the suspect walking along Center Avenue near the George Washington Bridge. The suspect then allegedly tried to make a run for it and fled across 14 lanes on the highway. Fort Lee police officers eventually subdued the suspect and placed him under arrest. While arresting the suspect, police allegedly found him carrying money stolen from the Fort Lee NJ bank.
