A 41-year-old woman from Rahway is under arrest after she allegedly robbed a local bank on Wednesday morning.
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.
Officers on scene quickly disseminated a description of the woman to units searching the surrounding area.
An Officer working an extra-duty construction detail stopped a woman matching the description of the suspect a few blocks away on W. Blancke St.
The woman, identified as Quiana Nobles, was quickly identified as the suspect and placed under arrest.
“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.
These criminal charges are mere accusations.
Every defendant is presumed innocent unless and until proven guilty in a court of law.
