Andreus Bruno, 20, of West New York, was arrested and charged with armed robbery, weapons offenses, and endangering the welfare of a minor on July 7th, according to Police Capt. David Dowd.
One robbery occurred on July 5th in the area of 7200 Boulevard East and the other on July 7th near 7807 4th Avenue. In both instances, Bruno brandished a handgun and stole the victim’s jewelry, police said.
Bruno is also a person of interest in two additional robberies that took place in West New York, totaling four robberies over the course of three days.
North Bergen police detectives worked quickly to identify the suspect and apprehend him outside of his West New York residence, ending his violent crime spree.
While Bruno has not been charged with any crimes out of West New York as of this writing, he is currently being held at the Hudson County Correctional Facility pending his court date, police said.
