"The wheels of justice turn slowly, but grind exceedingly fine," as the proverb says.
Proving the worth of those words, the Collingswood Police Department arrested a man for a stick-up job dating back to July.
Justin Dukes, 25, of Turnersville, was charged with first-degree robbery, possession of a weapon for an unlawful purpose, unlawful possession of a handgun, aggravated assault with a firearm and theft in connection with a daylight robbery of the Aldi supermarket.
The Collingswood Detective bureau developed information about Dukes’ possible involvement in the case after a lengthy investigation, and later determined that they had sufficient information to charge him with the crime.
Dukes was remanded to the Camden County correctional facility on full-cash bail in excess of $150,000.
