Man Completes 15-Year Sentence for Robbery, Takes Bus from Prison to Rob Same Store



After
spending 15 years in state prison for robbing a "Stride Rite" shoe
store, police say Christopher M. Miller, 40, took the bus from prison to rob
the same store again.



On
March 22, 2014 at 4:21 PM Ocean County, NJ police responded to the Stride Rite
shoe store for a Robbery. Two store employees told police the suspect entered
the store, demanded cash and their cell phones and fled on foot. According to
the employees the man also demanded they go to the back of the store and hand
over their car keys, but they refused those requests.



Soon
after an alert with the suspect's description was sent out a patrol officer
located Miller a few blocks away and detained him. The officers found the cell
phones in a plaza garbage can and the cash hidden in a gutter downspout behind
the shopping plaza.



"In
1999 the same Stride Rite was the victim of a Robbery in which the store
employees were taken to the rear storage room and tied up prior to the suspect
fleeing with cash," police explained in a press release. "The suspect
was apprehended for that crime as well as several others. He was sentenced to
15 years in prison and was released on March 21, 2014. That person was, in
fact, Christopher M. Miller. "



Investigation
found that Miller took a bus after his release from South Woods State Prison n
Bridgetown NJ to the Toms River store. Miller lists his last address as being
in Tulsa, OK. Police continue to investigate any local residential connection
to Toms River.



Miller
was charged with Robbery and is being held in the Ocean County Jail on $100,000
bail.
