    Former Cop Confesses to NJ, Pa. Bank Robberies: Police

    A former Bridgeton police officer confessed to robbing several banks and a drug store in New Jersey and Pennsylvania, after being arrested on Thursday, according to nj.com

    Carl Holliday, 33, was arrested after a witness from one of the Pennsylvania robberies tipped off police.

    Nj.com reports that around 4:15 p.m. on Thursday, a man who had been present at the Nov. 18 robbery of a PNC Bank in White Haven, Pa. noticed the gold-colored Honda Accord parked outside the bank that Holliday reportedly drove.

    The witness called police who pulled the car over for not having any license plates. Holliday was identified as the driver.

    While in custody, Holliday was interviewed by both White Haven police and FBI agents.

    Police say that during the interview, Holliday confessed to robbing six banks in New Jersey and Pennsylvania as well as a Rite Aid store in White Haven.

    The FBI says that Holliday was taken to the Federal Courthouse for the Middle District of Pennsylvania in Scranton and arraigned Friday afternoon on one charge of bank robbery related to the robbery of a PNC Bank in White Haven.

    While with the Bridgeton Police Department, Holliday was sentenced to three and a half years in prison for an incident that allegedly happened in Nov. 2006.

    NJ.com reports that Holliday and his partner allegedly assaulted and robbed a man that they had arrested. That same night, Holliday also allegedly did not arrest a man who he pulled over on suspicion of drunken driving, after it was revealed that the man was the brother of a fellow police officer.

    Holliday was sentenced to three and a half years in prison after the two incidents though he was released into an intensive supervision program around three months later, according to NJ.com
