WESTAMPTON, N.J., (CBS) – Police are asking for the public’s help in identifying a suspect wanted in connection with an armed robbery in Burlington County.


It happened Saturday at 7:46 p.m. at the Verizon Wireless Store located on the 1800 block of Burlington-Mount Holly Road in Westampton.

Westampton Police responded for a report of a man holding up the store at gunpoint.

Upon arrival, patrol units spoke with the store manager who stated a man wearing a grey hooded sweatshirt, khaki pants, a ski mask, and white Nike sneakers charged into the store wielding a handgun.

According to police, the man charged in demanding to know where the Apple iPhones were located.

Once the manager advised him that all the Apple iPhones were located, police say he then instructed him to take all of the $20 bills out of the register and place them in a pillow case he had.

Once all of the money was in the pillowcase, police say the suspect demanded the store manager to escort him to where the iPhones where located. The suspect demanded that the manager fill the pillow case with all of the Apple iPhone 5s.

Police say once the iPhones were placed in the pillowcase, the suspect ran out the back of the store and into a nearby neighborhood.

According to police, the suspect fled the scene with several Apple iPhone 5s and 5c and an undetermined amount of cash.

Anyone with information is asked to contact Westampton Police Detectives at (609)-267-3000.
