RIDGEWOOD, N.J. -- Ridgewood police charged a Woodcliff Lake man with robbing a local bank after he turned himself in to authorities in Pennsylvania.

A clear surveillance image distributed to regional law enforcement agencies led to the arrest of 49-year-old Jeffrey A. Morgan after he contacted the Bensalem, PA police and surrendered, Capt. Jacqueline Luthcke told Daily Voice Friday afternoon.

Morgan was being held in the Bucks County Jail pending extradition to New Jersey to face bank robbery charges.

Morgan passed a note demanding money to a teller at the TD Bank on Franklin Avenue at 4:25 p.m. Tuesday, then fled with an undisclosed amount of cash, authorities said.

No weapons were involved, Luthcke said.

The Bergen County Sheriff’s Bureau of Criminal Identification collected evidence and the FBI assisted in the investigation.
