Two Charged in Mount Ephraim Bank Robbery

According to authorities, a man armed with a folding knife threatened to kill a Mount Ephraim bank manager if he was not given cash amid a robbery on Saturday.

As stated by witnesses, Justin Trewin entered the PNC Bank on the 200 block of North Black Horse Pike and approached a teller. The 32-year-old at that point allegedly jumped over the counter, brought out a knife and threatened to stab the bank manager if cash was not given to him.

The Bellmawr man was given an undisclosed amount of cash, then fled toward the Black Horse Diner, where he got into a vehicle allegedly driven by John Dymond, 32, of Erial.

A Mount Ephraim Police officer who responded to the 911 call saw a vehicle matching the description of the one involved in the robbery, and arrested Dymond and Trewin after pulling them over at Kings Highway and the Black Horse Pike.

According to the Camden County Prosecutor’s Office, the two are charged with robbery, aggravated assault, terroristic threats and resisting arrest. They are both being held in the Camden County Correctional Facility awaiting a pretrial detention hearing.
