UPDATED: Authorities Seek Mount Olive Bank Robber

Well-dressed man's description similar to bandit who hit Parsippany bank earlier this month.

Authorities are looking for a well-dressed man who did not show a weapon when he robbed the PNC Bank on Route 46 in Budd Lake Monday afternoon, the Morris County Prosecutor's Office said.

The robber is described to be a while male in his early 20s, about 6-foot-2 with a slender build, the prosecutor's office said. The man has short dark hair, facial hair and a pronounced nose, the prosecutor's office said.

The man was wearing dark-colored dress clothes with a white shirt and dark-colored tie and was wearing dark glasses and a backpack, the prosecutor's office said.

A similar well-dressed man inside a Pathmark on Route 46 in Parsippany on July 20.

Prosecutor Robert A. Bianchi said in a statement "law enforcement authorities are evaluating the relationship [of Monday's robbery] to other incidents."

The prosecutor's office said authorities are looking for a dark-colored Mitsubishi they believe may have been in the area at the time of Monday's robbery, which occurred just after 3 p.m.

Mount Olive Township Police, the Morris County Prosecutor's Office Major Crimes Unit, Morris County Sheriff's Office Criminal Investigations and K9 units, Federal Bureau of Investigation and the New Jersey State Police are investigating the robbery.

Anyone with information is asked to contact the Mount Olive Police Department at 973-691-0850 or the Morris County Sheriff’s Office Crime Stopper Program at 973-COPCALL.

They said Monday afternoon... I'm assuming they mean this afternoon? How do you rob a bank without a weapon? Strange...

The other person in the tape watches him walk in.. and is in two frames of this. Wonder if he is part of it.. to set up distraction.. He is staring right at the Suspect. Creepy.

Of course everyomne stared at him. It was a full grown man in a beret. They should catch him and prosecute his parents.

how much money did he get? I would have thought they would have been suspicious right off the bat, your not supposed to wear hats anymore in banks, and why the back pack? (did he tell them he had a bomb in it??) If I was working there I would have pushed their panic button right away... luckily nobody was hurt and thats whats most important
