Bergen County Prosecutor Mark Musella announced the arrests of Monica Peters-Gore, 52, of Teaneck and Gary L. Williams, 38, of Englewood on charges of robbery and unlawful weapon possession. 

These arrests are the result of an investigation conducted by the Bergen County Prosecutor’s Office under the direction of Chief Jason Love and the Englewood Police Department.

According to Prosecutor Musella on Thursday, July 15, at approximately 3:50 a.m., a robbery occurred at a convenience store located at 476 Grand Avenue, Englewood. 

Prosecutor Musella said that video surveillance revealed that two individuals entered the store, and one of them forced the lone employee to the ground at knifepoint while the other removed several cartons of cigarettes. Both actors then fled the store in an unknown direction.

An investigation conducted by the Bergen County Prosecutor’s Office Special Investigations Squad and the Englewood Police Department identified Peters-Gore as one of the actors. 

According to Prosecutor Musella, a few hours after the robbery, Peters-Gore was arrested by members of the Teaneck Police Department following a motor vehicle stop. Additionally, evidence tying Williams to the robbery was discovered during the motor vehicle stop.

On July 21, detectives from the Englewood Police Department arrested Williams without incident.

According to Prosecutor Musella, Peters-Gore and Williams were each charged with first-degree robbery, third-degree unlawful possession of a weapon and third-degree possession of a weapon for unlawful purpose. 

Paters-Gore and Williams were both remanded to the Bergen County Jail pending their appearances in Central Judicial Processing Court.
