CAMDEN, N.J. (AP) – Authorities in southern New Jersey say a professional wrestler suspected of robbing a Collingswood bank has turned himself in.

Bail was set at $150,000 cash for 30-year-old Nicholas Wilson, who was charged with robbery. He surrendered to Collingswood police on Friday, one day after authorities identified him as a suspect in the holdup.

Camden County prosecutors say Wilson allegedly stole about $3,000 from the PNC Bank on Dec. 22. Authorities say Wilson handed a teller a note claiming he would shoot her if she didn’t give him money.

Wilson, who was being held in the county jail, has wrestled as “Nick Gage” for Philadelphia-based Combat Zone Wrestling.

It was not known Friday night if Wilson had retained an attorney.
