Police arrest man in theft of bag forgotten by ATM workers

MAHWAH, N.J. (AP) - Police say they've arrested one of two men who made off with a bag containing $150,000 in cash after two employees filling ATMs mistakenly left it on a northern New Jersey lawn.

Police arrested 42-year-old Alton Harvey on Wednesday afternoon in Irvington. Authorities are still seeking 35-year-old Jamar Bludson.

Mahwah police say the ATM employees had stopped at a business when one of them placed the satchel on the lawn as he moved items around in their vehicle. They drove off, forgetting the bag.

Sometime after 11:15 a.m. Monday, surveillance video showed a passenger in a white van grabbing the bag.

It's unclear if Harvey has an attorney who can comment on the charges. He's being held at the Bergen County Jail in lieu of $125,000 bail.
