UPDATE (July 24, 11:57 p.m.): Police are seeking a man they say robbed the Collingswood branch of OceanFirst Bank (formerly Sun Bank) by note.

According to the Camden County Prosecutor’s Office (CCPO), a man wearing “a black, zip-up, hooded sweatshirt with black shorts and white hi-top sneakers with black accents” entered the bank at 2:48 p.m. Tuesday.

The man allegedly passed a demand note to the teller, and fled with an undisclosed amount of cash.

No weapon was produced and no one was reported injured.

By 3:30 p.m., officers were cordoning off a perimeter around the building, which was closed to business.

A note on the door redirected customers to an alternate branch on Lenola Road in Maple Shade.

Anyone with information about the incident is asked to call CCPO Det. Elvin Nunez at 856-614-8078, Collingswood Police Det. Sgt. William Lyons at 856-854-1901, or to e-mail ccpotips@ccprosecutor.org.

OceanFirst Bank formally acquired Sun Bank in January 2018; the full integration of the two branches was completed in June.
