Second Burlco bandit pleads guilty in bank robbery spree

David Glenn, of Burlington Township, N.J., admitted to robbing seven South Jersey banks in two months.

A Burlington Township, N.J. man admitted Thursday to robbing seven banks in two months.

David Glenn, 23, partnered with Shalir Hall, 21, of Edgewater Park, to commit the crimes, according to federal prosecutors in New Jersey.

Two of the robberies – one targeting a Third National Bank and another a Roma Bank, both in Delran – were committed within 15 minutes of one another on Dec. 12, 2013.

On Jan. 8, the duo again pulled off two heists in one day, robbing a TD Bank in Bellmawr and a PNC Bank in East Windsor, according to prosecutors.

Glenn also admitted to robbing the same Beneficial Savings Bank branch in Willingboro twice – on Nov. 14 and Nov. 26, 2013 – and to robbing a PNC Bank in Mount Laurel Nov. 29.

He and Hall alternated roles during the spree, with each man taking turns going inside the banks and acting as a getaway driver, prosecutors said.

U.S. Marshals arrested both men Jan. 13, initially on charges related to a Burlington Township home invasion that occurred three months before.

Glenn was also wanted in connection with three of the bank robberies, and authorities were able to link both men to additional heists after further investigation.

Glenn faces a maximum possible penalty of 20 years in prison and a $250,000 fine for each of the seven robbery charges to which he pleaded guilty. His sentencing has been scheduled for March 13.

His plea agreement also requires him to make full restitution to each of the banks, prosecutors said.

Hall is scheduled to be sentenced Feb. 27, having pleaded guilty in federal court Nov. 14 to nine counts of bank robbery.
