​WARREN, NJ - Two men were arrested in connection with the armed robbery of the Krauszer's on Stirling Road on March 26, Somerset County Prosecutor Michael H. Robertson, Somerset County Prosecutor’s Office Chief of County Detectives John W. Fodor and Warren Township Chief of Police William Keane announced on Tuesday.

 

The two men are Frank E. Kline, age 52, of Belvidere Ave, and David B. Domanski, age 53, of Washington Arms, both located in Washington Township in Warren County, New Jersey.

 

Prosecutor Robertson stated that on March 26, 2017, at approximately 8:39 p.m., Warren Township Police received a 9-1-1 call reporting an armed robbery at the Stirling Road Krauszer’s food store. Responding officers met with an employee who reported that a male, approximately 50 years old, wearing dark clothing, light colored tactical boots and a white baseball hat entered the store. The individual approached the employee and while displaying a handgun demanded cash from the register.  The victim complied and gave the suspect an undisclosed amount of currency from the cash register.

During the course of this investigation, Washington Township Police (Warren County) contacted Warren Township Police detectives and advised that defendant Kline fit the description of the suspect they were looking for and that he was also a suspect within their jurisdiction on a similar type of incident.  

 

On Thursday, April 13, 2017 detectives from Warren Township, Long Hill Township (Morris County) and Washington Township conducted a physical surveillance on defendant Kline, in the Washington Township area, and confirmed that he matched the physical description displayed in the still photos obtained from video footage in the Krauszer’s armed robbery. Additionally, he was also wearing clothing that he wore during the armed robbery.

 

Prosecutor Robertson stated that Warren Township detectives obtained a Superior Court Search Warrant for defendant Kline and his residence.

 

Later that day, at approximately 5:30 p.m., Warren Township detectives with the assistance of detectives from Washington Township Police Department, Phillipsburg Police Department and Long Hill Township Police Department detained defendant Kline in Phillipsburg, New Jersey pursuant to the Superior Court Search Warrant. He was transported to the Washington Township Police Department for further investigation.

 

Prosecutor Robertson stated that at approximately 6:17 p.m., detectives from the Somerset County Prosecutor’s Office Major Crimes Unit,  Warren Township Police Department, Warren County Prosecutor’s Office, Washington Township Police Department, Morris County Prosecutor’s Office and Long Hill Township Police Department executed a Superior Court Search Warrant at defendant Kline’s Belvidere Avenue residence.

 

​During the investigation it was determined that defendant Domanski was also involved in the armed robbery. At approximately 8:30 p.m. Warren Township detectives responded to Domanski’s residence to speak with him.  Domanski then voluntarily responded, with the Warren Township detectives, to Washington Township Police Headquarters for further investigation.  

 

Prosecutor Robertson stated that detectives from the Warren Township Police department followed multiple leads which eventually led to the arrests of Kline and Domanski.

 

At 9:35 p.m.,  Kline and Domanski were arrested and charged with one count of first degree armed robbery, and one count of second degree unlawful possession of a firearm, police said. Both defendants were lodged in the Somerset County Jail pending a detention hearing.
