Cops in Camden County are on the hunt for a man who they say robbed a bank that's inside of a busy supermarket Tuesday afternoon.

At about 1:10 PM, a man entered the Acme Supermarket on East Evesham Rd. in Runnemede, he went directly to the Citizens Bank branch that's inside the supermarket, and passed a note to the teller, says Acting Camden County Prosecutor Jill Mayer. That note, according to authorities, demanded money in specific denominations and also threatened to shoot the teller if she did not comply.

What Not to Do on a Traffic Stop According to a NJ Cop

My husband is a police officer. He is an amazing man who saves lives and upholds the law. He makes me proud every single day.

I know being a police officer can come with a lot of criticism, especially when there are bad eggs that give police officers a bad name. I can assure you that there are many police officers that uphold the law and do not abuse it, and my husband is one of them.

I hear stories when my husband comes home and he tells me that he encounters some crazy people. I feel like it is very simple to not get arrested by a police officer once you're pulled over or have an encounter with a cop. I went right to my hubby and he gave me some tips to share with all of you.
