The man who allegedly threatened to shoot up a Toms River bank unless he was given money, five days before Christmas, awaits court proceedings while being held in the Ocean County Jail on $100,000 bail.
He got away without being identified, but Toms River investigators hope that the Internet can travel a greater distance, in shorter time, than the suspect in an attempted bank heist can.
The incident took place Tuesday, December 20, at about 11 AM in the TD Bank branch on Fischer Boulevard, according to police.
