Montclair Authorities Investigating Armed Robbery

Montclair NJ Robbery LawyerMontclair authorities are currently investigating an armed robbery that occurred at a local gas station recently. The two male suspects, who remain unidentified, reportedly grabbed a gas station employee by the neck and robbed him at gun point.

According to a news release issued by the Montclair Police Department, the robbery in question occurred at approximately  6:22 p.m. on Saturday, June 11th, at the Delta gas station located on Harrison Avenue in Montclair. During the incident, two male suspects entered the gas station inquiring about cigarettes. One of the suspects then grabbed the gas station employee by the throat, while the other suspect held a gun to the victim’s neck and demanded cash.

The two suspects reportedly stole approximately $1,000 before fleeing the scene. One of the suspects has been described as a stocky Hispanic man, about 5-feet-9-inches tall, while the other has been described as a tall, dark-skinned black man who walks with a limp. Police are currently seeking both suspects and have yet to make any arrests.

If the suspects are ultimately identified and apprehended, they may face charges for robbery, unlawful possession of a weapon, and possession of a weapon for an unlawful purpose. The robbery charges, governed by N.J.S.A. 2C:15 -1, will likely be in the first degree, due to the presence and threat of using a weapon during the commission of the offense.

If you are convicted of first degree robbery in New Jersey, you are exposed to a prison sentence ranging from 10 to 20 years, as well as a minimum period of parole ineligibility. First degree robbery is among the offenses subject to New Jersey’s No Early Release Act (NERA), which requires a defendant to serve 85% of the sentence imposed before becoming eligible parole.
