A 40-year-old Collingswood* man is in police custody, having been accused of passing demand notes at two Camden County banks in the past week.

David Walker faces two counts of robbery in connection with the May 18 robbery-by-note of the Haddon Heights TD Bank and the May 22 robbery-by-note of the Haddon Township Wells Fargo bank.

Walker is alleged to have received cash in both incidents, in which no injuries were reported.

He was arrested Tuesday on the 4300 block of Aramingo Avenue in Philadelphia.

Investigators credit community tips with helping them crack the case, according to a statement from the Camden County Prosecutor’s Office.

Walker is being held by the Philadelphia Police department, awaiting extradition to the Camden County Jail for a pretrial detention hearing.

It’s the second time within a month that a local man has been accused of committing multiple bank robberies

In April, a Haddon Township man was charged in connection with multiple robberies-by-note of the Oaklyn TD Bank branch.

All persons charged with criminal offenses are presumed innocent unless and until found guilty in a court of law.

An arrest is not a conviction.

CORRECTION: Walker is a Collingswood resident, not an Oaklyn resident, as was initially reported.
