300-Pound Suspect Robs Absecon Bank, Uses Ambulance as Getaway Car
Here's a South Jersey story that caught our attention: the FBI say a 300-pound Atlantic City man robbed the Absecon TD Bank Tuesday and made his getaway in an ambulance.
According to the Press of Atlantic City, authorities have charged Joseph Wilson, 26, with entering the bank on the White Horse Pike and handing a note to a teller demanding money at about 1pm Tuesday. The teller gave Wilson an undetermined amount of money and he fled.
Wilson, described as 5'8" and 300 pounds, ran south on Mill Road before jumping in a TRICARE Ambulance and driving off.
The ambulance was later recovered in Egg Harbor Township and impounded.
Wilson was later apprehended at a Pleasantville home and charged with the robbery. He remains in jail in lieu of $100,000 bail.
Now, about that ambulance. It wasn't immediately clear whether Wilson stole it or if he had been driving it before the robbery. If the ambulance was stolen, at least there wasn't a patient being transported in the back. Hey, you never know.
