Re.: Plea in bank robbery
Travis C. Stanback (DOB 1/2/81), of Paulsboro NJ, pleaded guilty today (10/16) to participating in the 3/23/16 armed robbery of a West Deptford NJ bank and also admitted to separate cocaine possession and false bomb threat charges.
In the robbery of the BB&T bank on Kings Highway, four defendants were charged with taking $140,500 at gunpoint from the bank vault. Cases remain open for the other three, Charmaine Stanback (DOB 9/29/90), of Clarksboro NJ; Latoya Y. Bryson (DOB 12/24/77), of Williamstown NJ and Quamaine J. Jackson (DOB 3/18/94), of Chesilhurst NJ. Investigators arrested the suspects within a week.
As a result of negotiations with the Gloucester County Prosecutor’s Office, Travis C. Stanback pleaded guilty to first degree armed robbery. Under the agreement, the GCPO will recommend a sentence of 10 years in state prison, with no parole possible for 85 percent of the term. The sentence encompasses the robbery, bomb threat and narcotics cases.
Superior Court Judge M. Christine Allen-Jackson scheduled sentencing on the robbery case as well as the other charges for 1/16/18.
Stanback also pleaded guilty to second-degree falsely reporting a bomb that resulted in evacuation of West Deptford High School on 3/17/16 and third-degree possession of crack cocaine during a 4/2/16 vehicle stop in Paulsboro.
