Man Charged In 4 Southern New Jersey Bank Robberies

BROOKLAWN, N.J. (AP) — Camden County authorities say a man accused of robbing two banks Saturday morning has also been charged with two other bank robberies that occurred in recent weeks.

Forty-year-old Christopher Edwards of Lindenwold was arrested around 10 a.m., shortly after a bank in Brooklawn was robbed.

County Prosecutor Warren Faulk said a police officer in Mount Ephraim saw a car fitting the description of the robber’s vehicle and detained Edwards, who was later charged with robbing a bank in Stratford earlier Saturday. Further investigation led to Edwards being charged in two other Stratford bank robberies—one that occurred Thursday and another on June 17.

Faulk said no weapons were displayed in the robberies, but wouldn’t disclose how much was stolen.

It wasn’t immediately known if Edwards had retained a lawyer.

    Can someone please tell me why people wait until they get up in age to do stupid stuff? Isn’t wisdom supposed to come with age? I know young people to silly and stupid things. We expect that of them, part of the growing-up process. But, some people get to be 35/40, even 50/60 and are robbing banks, raping, stupid stuff. What’s up with that? Here’s my slogan: CRIME: IT ISN’T JUST FOR YOUNG FOLKS ANYMORE!!
