Tips from the public led to the arrest of two men linked to several robberies.

Police on November 14th posted surveillance images of a suspect wanted for an armed robbery at the Fulton Bank in Alloway Township, Salem County.

Following the overwhelming number of shares, likes and retweets, Jeffery Edmonds, 44, from Ridley Park, PA, turned himself in to police just a few hours after police released the surveillance photo on social media.

While Edmonds was at Woodstown Station, detectives determined that Edmonds was wanted in connected with a robbery at the Ocean Bank in Upper Deerfield on November 6th and was the “wheel man” or driver of the “get-away” car in a robbery at “The Store” in Upper Pittsgrove on November 1st.

Further investigation revealed that Terrance Robinson, 31, from Havertown, PA, was an alleged accomplice of Edmonds in all three robberies.

Detectives from the State Police Fugitive and Electronic Surveillance Units and the Upper Darby, (PA) Police Department responded to Robinson’s home on Nov. 21st, where he was taken into custody without incident.

Police charged Jeffery Edmonds and Terrance Robinson with conspiracy to commit robbery, robbery, possession of a weapon for unlawful purpose, and unlawful possession of a weapon.

A judge ordered both suspects be held at the Salem County Correctional Facility pending detention hearings.

Charges are mere accusations and the suspects are considered innocent until proven guilty.
