[VIDEO-Updated 1:15 PM] FIRST REPORT: The Harmony Bank on River Avenue was just held up. This is the second bank robbery in two days in the area and the second time the same bank was robbed in just 4 weeks. The suspect, described as a black male and husky built, handed the teller a note saying he had a weapon, and fled with an unspecified amount of cash.
The suspect fled in a silver 4 door Accura with temporary tags.
Earlier this morning, a man fitting the description of yesterday’s suspect, entered another bank on River Avenue. Police responded to the area, but found nothing. The Harmony Bank was robbed about 20 minutes later, possibly by the same suspect.
On May 27th, the same bank was robbed.
The Ocean County Sheriff’s are on scene investigating.
Like I said Yesterday
WILD WILD WEST
I’m beginning to think the teller is related or knows this guy that comes in. And at the end of the day they split the money.
This is crazy!! Like someone posted once before..I’m going to go in with a plastic spoon and demand money!! This is getting ridiculous.
Lots of bank robberies is a good sign. It shows that we are a great city, almost like Manhattan. Now all we need is just a few more potholes, a socialist mayor, and a few more terrorist unions, and we’ll be no different than the greatest city in the world – Manhattan!
manhattan is a borough
@ neb..I was thinking the same thing.
No need to post anymore, do we post everytime the president blows his nose?!
all banks should hirer armed guards and post them inside the bank, then maybe they won’t have this problem.
I don’t understand what’s going on. For a fraction of the money that was taken, they could have had full-time security. Why are banks allowed to endanger both their staff and their patrons this way? They should be mandated to have security to ensure their safety.
bc when you have security, you have shootouts and hostages, this way is much safer give the guy couple thousand bucks and let him walk, at least thats what the manager at chase bank says
Security is expensive and it raises the cost of doing business. I hope that LPD and the OC Sheriff;s Office is staking out the banks in the area.
The perp probably has a drug habit that is driving him to need cash often.
Let us hope that no one gets hurt between now and the day he is captured.
not sure where to post this just putting it here if you can plz put it in the right place

Unfortunately the towns and county do not have the manpower (or the funds) to post police at all the banks so we will continue to have reactive policework. Maybe the FBI can do it?
To #12. I don’t think you really get shootouts and hostages. The sight of an armed guard definately acts a s a deterrent to most would-be bank robbers.
what ever happened to security cameras and the emergency button, dont any of these banks have them and if they do, are they working?
Great Idea armed guards inside the band, next Headline X number of bank customers injured in bank shoot out ….
times are tough, people are broke, this is only the begining of things to come if our economy doesnt get better.
I guess it’s disharmony.
For the millionth time! why cant the banks have bullet proof partitions??? isnt that a no-brainer?? it should be state mandated justg like all the other things the state forces upon us . this at least makes sense
it only took 9 years to catch osama… so this guy still has some time till these cool guys in sunglasses figure this out-lol
i will continue to bank online…
