Cops Arrest Man for Camden County, NJ, Supermarket Bank Robberies
Cops say a man has been arrested in connection to two bank robberies in Camden County earlier this month.
Acting Camden County Prosecutor Jill Mayer says Chris Leblanc was arrested last Thursday by officers with the Evesham Township Police Department.
According to authorities, on July 13th, Leblanc entered the Acme Supermarket in Runnemede, went to the Citizens Bank branch inside of that store, and passed a note to a teller demanding money. He left the scene with an undisclosed amount of money.
Three days later, Leblanc allegedly committed the same crime, this time at ShopRite on Berlin-Cross Keys Road in Winslow Township. There, he passed a note to a teller at the PNC Bank branch inside of the market and then fled with cash.
In both cases, Mayer's office says the notes that were passed to the bank tellers indicated they would be shot if they did not comply. No one was injured in either robbery.
Leblanc is currently being held in the Burlington County Correctional Facility pending a detention hearing sometime later this week.
The public is reminded that all persons charged with crimes are presumed innocent until proven guilty in a court of law.
