Man Faces 20 Years for Armed Robbery at Vineland Bank

A man faces 20 years in state prison for holding up a Vineland bank four years ago, authorities say.

Leonard Johnson, 53, of Millville was found guilty in Superior Court this week of first-degree armed robbery, according to Cumberland County Prosecutor Jennifer Webb-McRae.

Authorities say Johnson went into the Susquehanna Bank at the intersection of Garden Road and Delsea Drive on April 24, 2013, where he gave a teller a note demanding money and told her he had a gun.

He then fled the area on a bicycle, Webb-McRae said. Authorities did not say how much cash he got.

Johnson was arrested after a joint investigation involving the Vineland Police Department, New Jersey State Police and the FBI.

Sentencing is scheduled for Nov. 3. Along with facing 20 years in prison, Johnson will be subject to the No Early Release Act, Webb-McRae said.

The three-week trial was held before Superior Court Judge Cristen D’Arrigo. Elizabeth Vogelsong prosecuted the case and attorney Terry Stomel represented Johnson.
