Two Busted In High-Speed Police

Two alleged armed robbers were arrested Monday after leading police on a high speed chase in western New Providence.

Police said a 46-year-old and a 19-year-old male are in police custody for questioning in connection with an armed robbery in a local bank’s parking lot.

“Shortly after 10:00 a.m. a male and a female victim were in the parking lot of Scotia Bank located on West Bay Street, when a man armed with a handgun approached them and robbed them of a deposit bag containing an undisclosed amount of cash,” police reported.

“The gunman then sped off in a white Honda vehicle driven by another man.”

They added that police on mobile patrol in the area spotted the Honda vehicle with the two suspects leaving the parking lot of the bank and attempted to stop the vehicle.

“The suspects refused to stop initiating a police chase in the western area of New
Providence,” police added. “Police pursued the suspects until they abandoned the vehicle in the Pride Estates area, where they fled on foot.”

“After a brief foot pursuit, the suspects were taken into custody.”

Police officials said a deposit bag containing an undisclosed amount of cash was also recovered.
