Bank robber living next to police station

Police didn't have to travel far to find a man accused of robbing three banks in southern New Jersey.

That's because 61-year-old Lawrence Dove Sr. lives next door to a police station.

Dove was arrested Wednesday near his Barrington home and charged with robbing banks in Haddon Township, Haddonfield and Lawnside this month.

Authorities have not said how much Dove, who is unemployed, may have taken from the banks.

Dove is being held on $225,000 bail. He could face up to 30 years in prison if convicted.
