 Gang member sentenced to five years for bank robbery

17:32 | , , ,

Gang member sentenced to five years for bank robbery: "member of a Burlington County-based street gang was sentenced to serve time in federal prison for an armed bank robbery.

Tarrell Matthews, 21, of Willingboro, was sentenced Monday in U.S. District Court to five years for the March 17, 2009, robbery of a Beneficial Savings Bank on Merchantville Avenue in Pennsauken.

According to the U.S. Attorney’s Office, Matthews brandished a revolver during the heist and escaped with $37,350.

He was arrested in July and pleaded guilty Sept. 16 to one count of bank robbery, the U.S. Attorney’s Office said.

Law enforcement sources have described Matthews as a member of the Burlington County-based gang MOE, also known as Muslims Over Everything, which has been tied to numerous bank robberies in Burlington County and South Jersey.

The reputed leader of the gang, Terrek K. Parker, 23, of Willingboro, was sentenced to 19 years in federal prison last month for his role in planning and orchestrating three bank robberies involving other gang members, as well as smuggling handguns into New Jersey. He also is serving a 32-month federal prison term for a 2009 gun-smuggling conviction."
