MAHWAH, N.J. – A second man is in custody for allegedly making off with a bag containing $150,000 in cash that was mistakenly left behind by ATM workers in New Jersey.
Police say 35-year-old Jamar Bludson and another man took the money that had been forgotten outside a Mahwah business on July 27.
Officers found Bludson at a motel in Newark. He is being held on $125,000 bail, charged with theft of mislaid property.
Police believe Bludson was captured on surveillance video jumping out of a van and grabbing the bag. The driver of the van, 42-year-old Alton Harvey of Hillside, was arrested on July 31.
Authorities say Harvey told detectives he bought an SUV with some of the money.
Investigators determined the ATM workers were not involved in the theft.
