EHT Police Arrest Atlantic City Man in Connection with Robberies
An Atlantic City man is facing multiple charges after a mini-crime spree in Egg Harbor Township yesterday.
According to Egg Harbor Township Police, officers were called yesterday afternoon to Sadia’s Tea and Coffee in Risley Commons, on the Black Horse Pike. A man, with a handgun, had demanded money from the register. He made off with an undetermined amount of cash and fled the scene.
According to police:
The suspect was described as a white male approximately 6’ tall and in his early 30s. The suspect was last seen wearing a blue/grey sweatshirt, grey shorts, sunglasses and a hat. The description matched the suspect from an earlier shoplifting incident at Home Depot where that suspect had not been apprehended. Several Patrol Officers and Detectives responded and checked the area for the suspect.
Investigation identified the suspect in both incidents as Christopher Munyon, 30 years of age from Atlantic City, who was located and taken into custody at an area residence. Munyon was charged with robbery, terroristic threats, possession of a weapon for an unlawful purpose, unlawful possession of a weapon, theft and conspiracy.
Anyone with information on either incident is urged to call the Egg Harbor Township Criminal Investigation Bureau at (609) 926-4039 or (609) 926-4051.
