Man arrested in connection with Hunterdon County bank robbery

READINGTON TOWNSHIP, NJ (Hunterdon County) – A Pennsylvania man has been arrested in connection to a robbery that occurred at a TD Bank in Readington Township in June, according to police.

On June 30, at 2:53 p.m., police responded to the TD Bank, located at 350 Route 22 West in the Whitehouse Station section of the township, for a bank robbery that had just occurred, police said.

It was reported that the suspect passed a note to the teller demanding money and then fled out the front door towards Old Highway 28, police said.

Then on July 21, detectives from the Readington Township Police Department and special agents from the Federal Bureau of Investigation executed two search warrants in Allentown, PA after detectives used various investigative means to establish Felix E. Gil, 30, of Allentown as a suspect in the robbery, police said.

Evidence was seized under the search warrants that linked Gil to the robbery, police said.

Gil was charged with second-degree robbery, third-degree theft, and fourth-degree theft from a person. He has been lodged in the Lehigh County Jail pending his extradition.

Assisting in this investigation was the Federal Bureau of Investigation, New Jersey State Police-Perryville Barracks, and the Allentown Police Department (PA).

“The police department would like to thank the residents of Readington Township for remaining vigilant and recognizes that positive outcomes in cases such as this would not be possible without the assistance of the community that we serve,” police said.
