Additionally, Gloucester County prosecutors will have 30 days to present charges to a grand jury that Marvin Jones, 27, conspired with his girlfriend to rob the restaurant on Nov. 24, 2013.
Jones “vehemently denies” the allegation and will attempt to present an alibi showing he was elsewhere, his attorney said.
However, Erica Albert, a shift-manager at the restaurant at the time of the robbery, has implicated him in the hold-up, Assistant Gloucester County Prosecutor Alec Gutierrez told Superior Court Judge M. Christine Allen-Jackson.
Albert’s account “is consistent with what officers observed in a surveillance video,” Gutierrez said.
Allen-Jackson noted that while Jones has a verified address, he was unemployed and had prior disorderly persons convictions in New Jersey and a grand larceny conviction in Virginia.
Albert, 27 of Clayton, surrendered to authorities on Feb. 7. Jones was arrested by police in Newport News, Virginia on a warrant issued by the Gloucester County Prosecutor’s Office and extradited to New Jersey.
Jones and Albert are charged with second-degree unlawful possession of a weapon, second-degree certain persons not to possess a weapon, third-degree theft and fourth-degree criminal mischief.
