bank-robberA bank robber who threatened to shoot a bank teller and everyone else in the bank last month, has been captured, police said today.

On December 22nd, Toms River Detective Randy Petrick, arrested and charged a Toms River Man with the robbery.

The charges stem from a December 20th incident at the Fischer Boulevard TD Bank in which a man handed the teller a note demanding money. The note stated “If you don’t follow these instructions then I will shoot you and everyone else in the bank.”

After surveillance images of the man were disseminated to local news outlets and various social media sites, tips began to come in.

The man was ultimately identified as 36-year-old Paul E. Hansen, of Linden Road. He is currently being held in the Ocean County Jail on $100,000 bail.

“We want to thank those citizens that provided us with the valuable information that led to this arrest,” the Toms River Police Department said.
