Authorities say a father and his son have been arrested in connection to a bank robbery in Camden County that occurred in April.
43-year-old Jermaine Johnson of Haddonfield was arrested by the US Marshals NY/NJ Fugitive Task Force at a home on Linden Avenue on May 18th. He has been charged with first-degree robbery and weapons offenses and is currently being held in the Camden County Jail awaiting trial.
Meanwhile, his son, 23-year-old Safeek Johnson of Philadelphia was arrested Monday by the same task force at the intersection of Rockland and Old York Roads in Philadelphia. Authorities say he was in possession of a gun at the time of his arrest. Johnson, like his father, has been charged with first-degree robbery and weapons offenses. He is currently being held in Philadelphia pending extradition.
Acting Camden County Prosecutor Jill Mayer and Voorhees Twp. Police Chief Louis Bordi say on the morning of April 26, officers responded to Fulton Bank on Haddonfield-Berlin Rd. for a report of an armed robbery.
