Kearny Wells Fargo robbed


The perp was apparently unarmed, and the take was relatively small, but the time and the place of the crime — midday on one of Kearny’s busiest thoroughfares — are cause enough for consternation.

At 12:45 p.m. last Friday, a man walked into the Wells Fargo Bank at 175 Passaic Ave., handed a teller a note demanding money and fled with approximately $1,500, Kearny police reported.

Police said no weapon was displayed and the direction of the bandit’s flight was unknown.

The robber was described only as a white or Hispanic male wearing sunglasses, jeans and a T-shirt over a long-sleeved shirt.

The investigation is ongoing. Anyone with information is asked to call the KPD at 201-998-1313 and ask for the Detective Bureau.
