Cumberland County, New Jersey, Man Sentenced to 100 Months in Prison for Bank Robbery

CAMDEN, N.J. – A Cumberland, County, New Jersey, man was sentenced today to 100 months in prison for robbing two banks with an accomplice, U.S. Attorney Craig Carpenito announced.

Quintin L. Jones, 36, of Vineland, New Jersey, previously pleaded guilty before U.S. District Court Judge Renée Marie Bumb to an information charging him with two counts of bank robbery. Judge Bumb imposed the sentence today in Camden federal court.

According to documents filed in this case and statements made in court:

On Oct. 11, 2016, Jones and an accomplice robbed a Cape Bank in Upper Deerfield Township, New Jersey. According to bank employees and video surveillance, two men wearing black hooded sweatshirts entered the bank. While one man crouched near the entrance and pointed what appeared to be a black revolver at employees, the other man approached bank tellers and directed them to place cash into a bag.

Both robbers fled the bank. Employees observed a tan or gold vehicle with a black soft-top rapidly exit the parking lot and turn in the direction of Vineland. Security cameras at the bank and an employee also captured pictures of the car. Investigators determined that the car matched the description of a Chrysler Sebring that was stolen on Sept. 22, 2016, during a carjacking in the parking lot of a Walmart in Mays Landing, New Jersey.

On Oct. 15, 2016, troopers with the N.J. State Police responded to a vehicle fire at a parking lot in Parvin State Park in Pittsgrove Township, New Jersey. After fire personnel extinguished the flames, troopers determined that the vehicle was the same car that had been stolen in the carjacking on Sept. 22, 2016.

Subsequent investigation revealed that Jones and the accomplice had purchased a gas can at a Walmart in Vineland and then took a cab to a Wawa gas station near Parvin State Park, where they purchased gas shortly before police responded to the vehicle fire. Investigators also learned that Jones, who had been staying at a local hotel on Oct. 15, 2016, had been observed by an employee placing a large amount of cash in a bag. Acting on this and other information, the State Police later obtained state arrest warrants for Jones and the accomplice along with search warrants for their residences. Law enforcement personnel who searched the accomplice’s residence also found clothing consistent with the outfits worn by the two men during the Cape Bank robbery as well as a toy revolver, cash, gloves, and a car key that appeared to be for the Chrysler Sebring. 

Jones also admitted robbing Newfield National Bank in Newfield, New Jersey, on Oct. 7, 2016, with the accomplice. During that robbery, Jones and the accomplice stole cash before fleeing in the same stolen Chrysler Sebring.

In addition to the prison term, Judge Bumb sentenced Jones to three years of supervised release and ordered him to pay restitution of $30,856.

Jones’ accomplice, Nathan L. Wallace of Vineland, pleaded guilty on Jan. 24, 2018, and is scheduled to be sentenced Oct. 9, 2018.

U.S. Attorney Carpenito credited special agents of the FBI’s Newark Division, Atlantic City Resident Agency, under the direction of Special Agent in Charge Gregory W. Ehrie in Newark; the FBI’s Philadelphia Division, South Jersey Resident Agency, under the direction of Special Agent in Charge Michael Harpster; the N.J. State Police, under the direction of Col. Patrick J. Callahan, with the investigation leading to today’s sentencing. He also thanked the Vineland Police Department; the Hamilton Township Police Department; the Newfield Police Department; the Cumberland County Prosecutor’s Office; and the Salem County Prosecutor’s Office for their roles in the investigation.

The government is represented by Assistant U.S. Attorney Gabriel J. Vidoni of the U.S. Attorney’s Office Criminal Division in Camden.
