The FBI may be close to identifying the man who robbed the Chase Bank nearly two months ago, Patch has learned.

He did not show a weapon. FBI spokesman Bryan Travers said that while the matter was still under investigation, the man may soon be identified. “We have a very, very good lead that we’re following up on,” Travers said. “It’s a good chance this is probably our guy.” If you have any information pertaining to the robbery, you can contact the FBI at (973) 684-6614.
