Authorities said Travis C. Stanback 36, of Paulsboro NJ, pleaded guilty today to participating on March 23, 2016, armed robbery of a West Deptford NJ bank and also admitted to separate cocaine possession and false bomb threat charges.

According to authorities, in the robbery of the BB&T bank on Kings Highway, four defendants were charged with taking $140,500 at gunpoint from the bank vault.

Some cases remain open for the other three suspects; Charmaine Stanback 27, of Clarksboro NJ; Latoya Y. Bryson 39, of Williamstown, and Quamaine J. Jackson 23, of Chesilhurst. Investigators arrested the suspects within a week.

Police said as a result of negotiations with the Gloucester County Prosecutor’s Office, Travis C. Stanback pleaded guilty to first degree armed robbery. Under the agreement, the prosecutor's office will recommend a sentence of 10 years in state prison, with no parole possible for 85 percent of the term.
