Toms River police are on the hunt for a man who was said to be involved in a robbery at a Wells Fargo bank branch on Monday.
The robbery took place at the branch located at 1700 Route 37 at about 2:52 p.m. A scanner service reported that the suspect passed a note to a teller and fled with cash; he did not show a weapon.
Police later provided photos of the suspect, who was described as a tall, heavy-set white man in his 30s. A slew of online commenters flooded the police department’s Facebook page with speculation that the perpetrator could be a woman, however. Anyone with information on the robbery is being asked contact Detective Randy Petrick at 732-349-0150 extension 1235 or e-mail firstname.lastname@example.org.
