Hopatcong NJ Police Investigate Armed Robbery of Liquor Store
Police in Hopatcong, New Jersey are searching for a man who allegedly committed an armed robbery at a local liquor store.
The theft incident occurred at around 2:16 p.m. on Sunday. The suspect reportedly walked into the Liquor Factory in Hopatcong, NJ and approached two workers. He then allegedly pointed a gun at the employees and threatened to shoot them unless they handed over money from the cash register.
After allegedly stealing $400, the suspect reportedly ran out of the store and drove off in a blue or black BMW 535i.
Although the liquor store workers provided Hopatcong detectives with a description of the suspect, figuring out the suspect’s identity may be difficult because he reportedly wore a white bandana over his face during the robbery.
If law enforcement can eventually apprehend the culprit, he would likely face criminal charges for armed robbery and weapons offenses.
