A Philadelphia man is in custody after allegedly having used a U-Haul van to batter three police vehicles while escaping a reported bank robbery in Pennsauken.
According to the Camden County Prosecutor’s Office (CCPO), Pennsauken Police responded to the 4900 block of Route 130 around 4:40 p.m. November 14 for a report of a robbery at the TD Bank.
There, a man police believe to be 34-year-old Kevin Allure of Philadelphia, allegedly passed bank employees a demand note, and threatened them, before leaving with an undisclosed sum of money.
Shortly thereafter, Pennsauken Police attempted to pull over a U-Haul van allegedly driven by Allure, whom they say crashed it into three police vehicles instead, injuring two officers in the process.
After the U-Haul could no longer be driven, Allure allegedly abandoned it along Haines Road near John Tipton Boulevard, and was captured by police as he fled on foot.
Allure is currently in the Camden County jail awaiting a pretrial detention hearing on charges including: first-degree Robbery, second-degree Eluding, third-degree Criminal Mischief, third-degree Assault by Auto, and fourth-degree Resisting Arrest.
Detectives from the Pennsauken Police Department, CCPO Major Crimes Unit, and CCPO Crash Response Investigations Team all worked on the case.
All persons charged with crimes are presumed innocent unless and until found guilty in a court of law. An arrest is not a conviction.
