TOMS RIVER, N.J. (March 26, 2014) A man who had just completed a 15-year prison term for robbing a New Jersey shoe store went back to the same store the day after his release and robbed it again, police in Toms River, N.J. said.
Christopher Miller, 40 was released from prison on Friday.
On Saturday afternoon he went back to the store he robbed in 1999, demanded cash from two employees, eventually took a cash register containing $389 and ran with the employees' cellphones, police said.
Officers tracked Miller down and found the stolen phones in a shopping center garbage can and the money in a downspout in the back of the building.
Miller, who used to live in Tulsa, Okla., was held Wednesday in lieu of $100,000 bond.
