SERVING NEW YORK WITH INTEGRITY & COMMITMENT

Man leaves prison, commits robbery once again

Many of our New York readers spend time in New Jersey for a variety of reasons, such as shopping. While most people never run into trouble when doing so, there is always the chance that something bad could happen.

A man who recently left a New Jersey prison after serving 15 years for robbery immediately went back to the same store to rob it again. In 1990, the man, who was 25 at the time, was arrested after he robbed a Stride Rite shoe store after tying up employees. After serving his time in prison, the man, who is now 40-years-old, went to the same shoe store to commit the same crime.

According to employees, he entered the store and demanded that the workers hand over cash. Upon telling two workers to go to a back room, they both refused. It was at that time that the man became upset, grabbing the cash register, which had $389 in it, and fleeing the store.

Police were able to track the man down only a few blocks away. He is being held on $100,000 bail after being charged with robbery. At this time, police do not have any information on whether he has an attorney, and it will be advisable for the man to retain one, if he does not.

In this case, many will wonder if the man made this decision once again because he does not know any life but that of one prison. It is possible that he became so comfortable with prison life, with having others tell him what to do, that his only thought was to commit the same crime in the hope of ending up in the same place.
