Authorities arrested a Burlington Township man Monday who they say knocked over a pair of Delran banks in a matter of minutes last month.
According to the Burlington County Prosecutor’s Office, David J. Glenn, 22, entered the 3rd Fed Bank on Bridgeboro Road in Delran at 1:10 p.m. Dec. 12 and handed a note to a teller. The note demanded money and indicated he had a gun, though no gun was displayed. On his way out of the bank, authorities said Glenn took the keys to a teller’s 2001 Nissan Pathfinder, which he immediately used to drive around the corner—approximately 1/10 of a mile away—to the Roma Bank on Hartford Road.
Once inside Roma, Glenn pointed a gun at a teller and a security guard and demanded cash, authorities said. He then fled the bank in the stolen SUV. The vehicle was later found abandoned in a nearby condominium development on the 200 block of Lawrence Lane. The gun used in the Roma Bank robbery was found inside, authorities said.
Glenn was taken into custody Monday night at a house in Newark by the Burlington County Sheriff’s Department Warrant Unit and the U.S. Marshals Service New York/New Jersey Regional Fugitive Task Force.
Glenn is also charged with robbing the TD Bank in Bellmawr on Jan. 8, 2014. According to the Camden County prosecutor, Glenn passed a note to a TD Bank teller claiming he had a weapon, though none was displayed, and fled on foot with the cash.
For the Delran robberies, Glenn is charged with two counts of aggravated assault, two counts of robbery, possession of a weapon for an unlawful purpose, unlawful possession of a firearm, carrying a handgun without a permit, terroristic threats and theft by unlawful taking. He’s charged with robbery in Camden County as well.
There were 24 bank robberies in Burlington County in 2013, and several remain unsolved. Nineteen of those robberies, including those Glenn is charged with, occurred in the final two months of the year.
Glenn’s bail was set at $350,000, with no 10 percent option, by Superior Court Judge Susan Claypoole, and he is lodged in Burlington County Jail. The case will be referred to a grand jury for indictment.
In addition to the Burlington County Prosecutor’s Office, the Burlington County Sheriff’s Department, Camden County Prosecutor’s Office, Delran Police Department, Essex County Sheriff’s Department, East Windsor Police Department, FBI, U.S. Marshals Service and the Willingboro Police Department assisted in the investigation.
