Would-Be Robber Picks Wrong South Jersey Store

A would-be robber in South Jersey picked the wrong store and had the tables turned on him by an employee.

The entire incident was caught on the store’s surveillance cameras.

On Thursday, the suspect, identified by police as 22-year-old Jonathan Bryceland, entered Pfeffer’s Food Market in Carney’s Point, Salem County.

The suspect pulled out a knife and demanded money.

The employee, who was standing behind the counter, pulled out a baseball bat and chased after the suspect.

The suspect then ran out of the store empty-handed.

Shortly after the incident, police say Bryceland, of Woodstow, was identified as the suspect. He turned himself into police Friday.

He is facing charges of attempted robbery, robbery, unlawful possession of a weapon, possession of a weapon for an unlawful purpose, terroristic threats, possession of marijuana under 50 grams and possession of drug paraphernalia.

Bail is set at $75,000.
