MORRISTOWN, NJ - A Morristown man faces carjacking and robbery charges after, claiming to have a gun, he robbed a person at an outdoor ATM on Jan. 3 and then stole the person's vehicle, police said.
The man, Michael Conway, 37, was arrested the next day and now faces charges including first degree carjacking, first-degree robbery and third-degree theft of a motor vehicle, according to the Morris County Prosecutor Frederic Knapp and Morristown Police Chief Peter Demnitz.
They said the robbery took place at the Wells Fargo Bank at 87 Ridgedale Avenue in Morristown at about 5:40 p.m.
Conway "approached the victim on foot, demanded cash from the victim and stated he had a gun," said the statement from Knapp and Demnitz. "After receiving an amount of cash from the victim," Conway took the person's vehicle and left the scene, they said.
The victim's car was recovered and police were able to identify Conway as the robber, said authorities. Conway was arrested Jan. 4 and placed in the Morris County jail on a warrant-complaint, they said.
The Morristown Bureau of Police was the main investigative agency and it was assisted by the Morris County Sheriff's Office and the prosecutor's office's major crimes unit.
