WEST LONG BRANCH – Nearly five years ago, police responded to a silent alarm and learned that a bandit had climbed through a ceiling vent and got away with about $700,000 from a safe. unlocked box inside a check cashing business in West Long Branch, New Jersey.

More than three years passed before an anonymous witness told a detective previously unknown details of the robbery, including the name of the person who carried it out and that he and two others helped the bandit to conceal it.
