Cinnaminson Bank Robbery Suspect Caught

Aquamena Hawthorne is suspected in four local bank robberies, including the July 10 incident in Cinnaminson.

An accused serial bank robber who police suspect of was arrested Friday.

Aquamena Hawthorne, 36, of Willingboro, was arrested in Camden after authorities tracked her down with license plate reader technology.

Hawthorne is suspected in four local bank robberies running from June 26 through this morning. Her alleged hits include:

June 26: Beneficial Bank, Beverly-Rancocas Road, Willingboro at 9 a.m.

June 26: Susquehanna Bank, White Horse Pike, Audubon at 9:45 a.m.

July 10: , Route 130, Cinnaminson at 10 a.m.

July 13: Wells Fargo Bank, Kings Highway, Cherry Hill at 10 a.m.

In each case, Hawthorne allegedly demanded money from the bank tellers and told them she had a gun, though she never showed one.

Authorities identified her license plate after the Audubon and Willingboro robberies, and that license plate was recorded by Camden City Police nearly 40 times in North Camden, officials said.

After the Cherry Hill robbery on Friday, Camden County Prosecutor’s Office investigators drove to North Camden and found Hawthorne. Officials said that at least some of the money she’s suspected of stealing is likely in her car; a search warrant is pending.

So far, Hawthorne is charged only with the Audubon and Cherry Hill bank robberies, but charges are pending in the other two cases and she’s the main suspect, according to a release from Camden County Prosecutor Warren W. Faulk, Cherry Hill Police Chief Richard Del Campo, Audubon Police Chief Thomas Tassi, and Willingboro Public Safety Director Police Chief Gregory Rucker.

Hawthorne’s charges include two counts of second-degree robbery, theft and conspiracy. She’s being held on $207,500 bail at the Camden County Jail.

Your right Miss Smalls I know nothing about you now I never said she should laugh about any wrong choices she has made her having the last laugh will be having healthily substance abuse free Amena will be her having the last laugh on the likes of people like you and I ONLY! Say that because from the very fist post you made the way you talk about your SISTER! Is a little extra it just seems so extra mean I never why put out so much personal info like that about the drugs and the girls we all know what she's being accused of why hang out all your families dirty laundry like that some of these people don't even know her I'm not saying condone what she has done BUT! Don't join in the people gloating about what she's going through. I don't plan to go tit for tat with you have your feelings on the matter as do I . I just wish you would stop all that bashing your only making yourself look like the uber jealous half sister that's glad she's down so now you can join in with the kicking. You talk about all the help you offered her well now since she probably at a super low point in her life why don't you offer her some words of encouragement in stead of dragging up all the poor choices she made and let her know today is a new day and she can do the right thing and it's never to late and I will say to you again your SISTER! Aquamena Chunglee Hawthorne will always be one of my dearest friends Mizz Smalls

What is "sophomoric" is the way the article is written. "An accused serial bank robber who police suspect of hitting up Cinnaminson’s Susquehanna Bank was arrested Friday"...sounds like Aquamena wrote it herself!
