From the Morris County Prosecutor’s Office:

Morris County Prosecutor Fredric M. Knapp and Borough of Florham Park Police Chief Joseph Orlando are seeking the public’s assistance in the continuing investigation into a bank robbery that occurred on the morning of Oct. 1, 2018, in Florham Park, New Jersey.

At this time, law enforcement is releasing additional photographs of the suspect, as well as photographs of a vehicle that is believed to have been involved in this incident.

At approximately 10:17 a.m., law enforcement received a report of a bank robbery that occurred at the Bank of America, located at 186 Columbia Turnpike in Florham Park. The subsequent investigation has revealed that a male entered the bank branch and demanded money. Upon exiting the bank, the male fled from the scene.

Various surveillance photographs from the interior of the bank and exterior locations have been obtained.

A review of the photographs from the interior of the bank reveals a suspect who may be further described as a black male, who has a black goatee, and was wearing eyeglasses and a Chicago Bulls “Windy City” baseball hat. The suspect was also wearing a grey hooded sweatshirt with black lining and grey colored sweatpants.

A review of surveillance from the area of the bank revealed a vehicle that may have been involved in this incident. The vehicle is believed to be a black Dodge Challenger with tinted windows and a chrome gas cap cover. It is unclear at this time as to whether the license plate is from New Jersey or from another state. There is no visible license plate on the front of the vehicle.

Still images of the suspect and the vehicle are attached.

Numerous law enforcement agencies have responded and are currently investigating this incident, including the Florham Park Police Department, the Major Crimes Unit of the Morris County Prosecutor’s Office, the Morris County Sheriff’s Office, and the Federal Bureau of Investigation.

Anyone with information about this incident, including the identity of this male, is asked to call the Morris County Prosecutor’s Office – Major Crimes Unit at 973-285-6200, the Florham Park Police Department at 973-377-2200, or Crimestoppers at 973-267-2255.
