The suspect committed the very serious theft offense a short time after 3:30 p.m. at the Chase Bank on Route 10 in Hanover Township, New Jersey. According to authorities, the suspect entered the building, walked toward a bank teller, and ordered the teller to give him money.

The suspect allegedly brandished a firearm while committing the theft crime.
