BRICK – Brick Police have arrested a man for a Monday morning robbery at the TD Bank on 2292 Hooper Ave.
According to police, 42-year-old Zachary Canace of Brick walked up to the bank counter around 11:30 a.m. and told the teller, “I need $5,000 G’s strapped to go. Do not hit the alarm button and nobody gets hurt, just give me my $5,000 now.”
The teller working behind the bank counter gave Canace money out of her drawer and he left the bank. Another teller working behind the counter recognized him and was able to provide a description of him to Officer Robert Heschle, who was also familiar with Canace and knew he lived near Tunesbrook Road. A police unit was sent out to locate him in that area and a perimeter was set up at a residence where he was believed to be inside on Drake Road. When Canace came out of the home, he was taken into custody without incident. All money stolen from the robbery has since been recovered.
Canace was charged with Robbery and Theft and was subsequently lodged in the Ocean County Jail.
