EDISON, NJ – Edison Police have charged a local township man in connection with the Oct. 24 robbery at PNC Bank, located inside the Stop & Shop grocery store on 1049 Route 1 South in Edison, according to Lt. Anthony Marcantuono.

Detective Frank Varga, from Edison’s major crime unit, working with the FBI, followed up leads and developed information that led to an arrest on Friday at the Middlesex County Adult Correction Center in North Brunswick.

Detective Varga arrested Timothy P. Thomson, 36, of Edison on one count of robbery in connection with the holdup at PNC Bank in Edison.

Police said Thomson entered the bank just before 6:30 p.m. on Friday, Oct. 24 and handed a note to a teller demanding money and stating Thomson had a gun. The suspect ran out of the PNC bank branch after the teller handed over an undisclosed amount of cash.

Thomson was already being held at the county jail on unrelated charges from another jurisdiction. Municipal Court Judge Gary Price set Thomson’s bail at $75,000 on the Edison robbery charge. Thomson remains incarcerated.
