An unidentified man vaulted the counter at TD Bank on Main Street Friday afternoon and made off with an unknown amount of cash, according to Moorestown Police.

Police said the man entered the bank around 5:52 p.m., climbed over the teller counter and took the cash, fleeing on foot into the neighborhood behind the bank. The suspect did not show a weapon or produce a note during the robbery.

There were no injuries to employees or patrons of the bank, police said.

Anyone with information is asked to contact Moorestown Police detectives at 856-914-3092 or the FBI’s Newark office at 973-792-3000.

There were 24 bank robberies in Burlington County in 2013, nearly 20 of which occurred in the last two months of the year.

If it is clear that someone is robbing banks at all "area banks", why are there no police or guards present, awaiting the arrival of this person? This makes me feel very apprehensive about entering any bank in or around Moorestown. Notice that the robber doesn't go to Camden, or even Pennsauken. In those areas, such actions are expected, and therefore less likely to occur. Apparently, the robber has determined that these banks are "easy targets." Perhaps the banks should utilize some of those excess fees they charge customers to hire a guard (who doesn't get paid much anyway). Do we have to wait for someone to get injured or killed for some preventive measures to appear?
