CRANFORD – The suspect in Saturday’s robbery of the Garden State Community Bank in Cranford may be behind six other New Jersey bank robberies, according to the Federal Bureau of Investigation.

The FBI’s Newark Division is asking for the public’s help in identifying and locating the man they believe has robbed seven banks since November 2012.  Anyone with information about these or any other bank robberies may contact the FBI at 973-792-3000. Authorities reminded citizens that they should never attempt to apprehend a fugitive on their own and should dial 911 in an emergency.
