Millville man gets 15 years for 2013 Vineland bank robbery
BRIDGETON — A Millville man was sentenced last week for the 2013 armed robbery of a Vineland bank.
Leonard Johnson, 53, will serve 15 years in state prison by order of Judge Cristen P. D’Arrigo, Cumberland County Prosecutor Jennifer Webb-McRae said in a statement Monday.
Due to the No Early Release Act, Johnson must serve at least 85 percent of the term before he is eligible for parole, Webb-McRae said.
A jury found Johnson guilty of first-degree armed robbery Sept. 22 following a three-week trial.
Vineland police were dispatched April 24, 2013, to the Susquehanna Bank at Garden Road and Delsea Drive for reports of an armed robbery, Webb-McRae said.
Witnesses told police the suspect, later identified as Johnson, entered the bank and gave a teller a note demanding money, stating he had a gun. He fled the bank on a bicycle, the prosecutor said.
Johnson was charged with armed robbery following an investigation by the Vineland Police Department, State Police and the FBI.
