Brick police have caught two suspects they say were behind Monday’s robbery of the TD Bank branch off Beaverson Boulevard in Brick.
Numerous tips from the public helped lead police to arrest Joseph Mason, 25, of Staten Island, N.Y., and Caila Graciano, 21, of Brick.
Mason, Sgt. Neal Pedersen said, is the suspect who entered the bank at 2:08 p.m. and handed the bank teller a note demanding money. Mason then fled the scene with over $500 cash to the waiting vehicle that Graciano was driving, police said. Both were charged with robbery and bail was set by Municipal Court Judge Robert M. Lepore in the amount of $75,000 cash.
Both suspects are currently lodged in the Ocean County Jail.
