Bank robbery suspect dimed out by his girlfriend

Police didn’t have to look any further than Francisco Marejo’s bed to find their primary suspect in a West New York bank holdup last week. That’s because his girlfriend turned him in to police. He was even wearing her hat, she said.


Marejo urged a judge to check the video — stills of which were posted on CLIFFVIEWPILOT last week — to know it wasn’t him. But Judge Richard Nierto was hardly swayed; He ordered that Marejo, 44, of Jersey City, remain held on $250,000 bail in the Hudson County Jail.


Prosecutors said Marejo held up the TD Banknorth on Bergenline Avenue at 61st Street on Wednesday. (See: Have YOU seen this man? )

His girlfriend reportedly called police after she overheard him talking on the phone about the holdup, then confirmed his identity after looking at the images released by authorities.
