UPDATED: Authorities Seek Mount Olive Bank Robber
Well-dressed man's description similar to bandit who hit Parsippany bank earlier this month.
Authorities are looking for a well-dressed man who did not show a weapon when he robbed the PNC Bank on Route 46 in Budd Lake Monday afternoon, the Morris County Prosecutor's Office said.
The robber is described to be a while male in his early 20s, about 6-foot-2 with a slender build, the prosecutor's office said. The man has short dark hair, facial hair and a pronounced nose, the prosecutor's office said.
The man was wearing dark-colored dress clothes with a white shirt and dark-colored tie and was wearing dark glasses and a backpack, the prosecutor's office said.
A similar well-dressed man robbed an Indus American Bank inside a Pathmark on Route 46 in Parsippany on July 20.
Prosecutor Robert A. Bianchi said in a statement "law enforcement authorities are evaluating the relationship [of Monday's robbery] to other incidents."
The prosecutor's office said authorities are looking for a dark-colored Mitsubishi they believe may have been in the area at the time of Monday's robbery, which occurred just after 3 p.m.
