Suspect robbed the store a day after his release
TOMS RIVER, N.J. — In 1999, 25-year-old Christopher Miller was arrested after he forced employees into the back room of the Stride Rite shoe store on Hooper Avenue in Toms River, tied them up and fled with cash.
After a 15-year sentence, Miller was released on Friday from South Woods State Prison in Bridgeton.
Police say Miller, now 40, took a bus from Atlantic City to Toms River on Saturday, and robbed the same shoe store. He is charged with robbery and is being held on $100,000 bail. Police had no attorney information for him.
