Two-time bank robber arrested after chase, crash

Police in New Jersey chased an alleged bank robber from Stratford to Moorestown, and arrested her after she crashed into the woods near a freeway exit in Camden County.

Police were called to a Bank of America branch in Stratford around 2:45 p.m. Monday and were told a heavyset black woman robbed the bank at gunpoint, then fled in a white Mercury Mountaineer, said Ronald Morello, Stratford police chief.

Morello gave this account:

Denise Taylor, 45, of Lawnside, was spotted in a car matching the description of the Mercury on White Horse Pike at Somerdale Road. When police approached and tried stopping Taylor, she sped off.  Taylor barreled along White Horse Pike and got on I-295 north. Police chased her until she eventually crashed in a wooded area, and arrested her with the help of a police dog.

Taylor is charged with two counts of armed robbery and possession of a loaded handgun. Morello said Taylor robbed the same bank Sept. 19.

The woman was taken to the Camden County Correctional Facility on $600,000 cash bail. She’s scheduled to appear in court Oct. 12.
