By Matt Skoufalos

Police are looking for help finding a man they say is wanted in a strong-arm robbery at the Merchantville Bank of America and a carjacking in Philadelphia.

Surveillance video released by the Camden County Prosecutor’s Office appears to show the man grabbing money from a fellow customer at the bank and fleeing shortly before 3:20 p.m. April 1.

Philadelphia police believe the same man stole a vehicle in a Wal-Mart parking lot at 2200 Wheatsheaf Lane in the city approximately 35 minutes earlier that same day.

Anyone with information is asked to contact Merchantville Det. Sgt. Steve Morrone (856-662-0518) or the Philadelphia Police East Detective Division at (215-686-3243).
