Lodi, N.J. — Police arrested a man suspected of robbing a bank in New Jersey after they say he stopped for a cup of coffee a block away.
Police say a man wearing a fedora hat approached a teller at the Hudson City Savings Bank in Lodi on Monday, placed a BB-gun on the counter and demanded money. The man fled with $4,000.
Maywood Police Chief David Pegg tells The Record newspaper an officer spotted a man matching the description of the suspect near the entrance of a Dunkin Donuts drinking coffee.
