Police are seeking a suspect disguising him or herself in Muslim garb in connection with two bank robberies in the borough.
By Matt Skoufalos
A suspect that police say is using traditional Muslim attire to disguise him or herself in order to rob local banks has struck a second location in Audubon in a matter of weeks.
The Camden County Prosecutor’s Office reported that a burqa-clad man passed a note demanding cash to a teller at the Beneficial Bank around 2 p.m. Wednesday. The man left with an undisclosed amount of cash, never producing a weapon.
No one was injured in the incident.
A suspect fitting that description is also wanted in connection with the September 25 robbery of the Audubon Savings Bank and the September 17 robbery of the Susquehanna Bank on Market Street in Camden City.
In all cases, the suspect was described as “a light-skinned man wearing a black burqa,” and fled on a BMX-style bike, according to a statement from the prosecutor’s office.
Anyone with information is urged to contact Camden County Prosecutor’s Office Detective Bob Ferris at 856- 225-8518 or Audubon Police Detective Sgt. Tim Stillman 856-547-1171.
