Two men brandish a gun while robbing the Sovereign Bank in Woodlynne. The FBI is searching for them.
Most robbers put on a mask or hoodie—not dress up like someone from the Village People to stick up a bank. The FBI and Camden County Prosecutor’s Office are searching for a pair of bank robbers, one dressed rather creatively, who held up at gunpoint the Sovereign Bank in Woodlynne on Feb. 27. The pair entered the bank at 2400 Mount Ephraim Avenue at 10:20 a.m. and confronted a teller in the lobby. They displayed a firearm and followed her to the counter, where they received an undisclosed amount of cash. Both fled, likely on foot. The two men are described as 5 feet, 6 inches to 5 feet, 8 inches tall with medium builds.

Weeks after pleading guilty to the kidnapping and carjacking of two female cab drivers in 2006, Jason Handy, 33, of Blackwood, was sentenced to 23 years in New Jersey state prison, the Camden County Prosecutor's Office reported Friday. The sentence was handed down by Superior Court Judge Samuel Natal, and Handy must serve 85 percent of it—or 19-and-a-half years—before he can become eligible for parole. Handy assaulted the first cab driver at knifepoint on March 28, 2006, in Gloucester Township. He bound and gagged the victim, locked her in the trunk of the cab, and then drove in to Camden City, where he abandoned the vehicle with the woman still inside.
