Christian Torres, a New York City rookie police officer, allegedly robbed a Sovereign Bank in Muhlenberg Township on April 11, making off with $113,000. He didn’t get far.
A Muhlenberg police officer, alerted by a silent alarm, entered the parking lot just as Torres left the bank and drove away. When the officer pulled him over, Torres, 21, identified himself as an NYPD officer. But the CVS bag stuffed with cash, a blonde wig and a derby hat on the floor of the car gave him away.
An investigation revealed that Torres had allegedly pulled off several bank robberies in New York with help from a Sovereign Bank teller. The 20-year-old teller is a forensic psychology major in Manhattan’s John Jay College of Criminal Justice.
