Photos released of man who passed note to teller of Wells Fargo Bank on Route 10 late Thursday afternoon.

Authorities have released photos of a man wanted for robbing a Succasunna bank late Thursday afternoon.

Acting Morris County Prosecutor Fredric Knapp said authorities are looking for a white man, about 5-foot-9 with facial hair, who was wearing all black when he passed a note demanding money from a teller at the Wells Fargo Bank on Route 10 in the Succasunna section of Roxbury Township at about 4:40 p.m. Thursday.

The man left on foot headed away from Route 10, Knapp said. The man was wearing what appeared to be a black jacket, black shirt, black pants, black boots and a black hat.

The Morris County Prosecutor's Office Major Crimes Unit, the Roxbury Police Department, the Morris County Sheriff's Office and the FBI are investigating the robbery.

Anyone with information about the incident, including the robber's identity, can contact the Morris County Prosecutor's Office at 973-285-6200, the Roxbury Township Police Department at 973-448-2100 or Crimestoppers at 973-267-2255.

Isn't it about time that banks locate their cameras 6' off the floor and closer to the faces of their "customers"? I realize that we are all using funny money, so the Fed will just "print" more, but someone could get hurt or killed during these bank robberies. Also, if Patch would like us to try to ID these perps, couldn't they allow their page be zoomed-in by the viewer? /end rant

Well, If you are going to rob someplace it might as well be a Bank----Thats where they have the most money on hand! Down here in FLA these boneheads are always robbing the 7/11s they get a grand haul of a few hundred dollars and the cashiers Casio wrist watch. There is a driver and two thugs 100 bucks each and not to bright. JC

Piece of cake...it's Jesse Pinkman. I was wondering what he was up to since "Breaking Bad" ended.
