LINDEN, NJ – Police in Linden have announced an arrest in connection with a Wednesday morning armed bank robbery at the Northfield Bank branch at 501 North Wood Avenue.
41-year-old Quiana Nobles from Rahway was arrested.
“At about 8:30 a.m. on Wednesday, May 18, 2022 a woman reportedly entered the Northfield Bank, located at 501 N. Wood Ave. The woman approached the counter, told the teller that she had a gun, and demanded money. The woman left the bank with approx. $3,800, last seen walking south on N. Wood Ave. No one in the bank was injured during the incident,” the Linden Police Department said in a statement.
Police said officers quickly began searching and sharing a description of the suspect and began searching the area shortly after their arrival.
The department said a city police officer working an extra-duty construction detail stopped a woman matching the description of the suspect a few blocks away on W. Blancke Street.
“This kind of crime will never be acceptable, and we are incredibly proud of the Police response in the case,” said Police Chief David Hart. “Perhaps, more importantly, this case demonstrates how quickly these criminals can be arrested and taken off our streets when witnesses and victims cooperate and provide timely information to Police.”
Nobles is charged with first-degree armed robbery and possession of an imitation firearm. She was remanded to the County Jail pending a scheduled appearance in Superior Court.
