Ridgefield Park detectives are exploring the possibility that a former Dean’s List student arrested this morning and charged with holding
up the Bank of America branch in the borough may have had an accomplice,
Jennifer Lynn Colaneri, 34, was free on $20,000 bail after a man she was with threatened to kill a grocery store security guard who caught her stealing a bottle of Scotch on Jan. 14.
Colaneri, who has most recently lived in Ridgefield Park and with her mother in North Bergen (NBHS Class of 1995), became a mother for the first time last September, giving birth to a girl.
However, she recently split with her husband, a move that she openly admitted had crushed her.
“People always pay for the stupid s**t they do…..LMAO,” she recently wrote on her Facebook profile page.
Ridgefield Park detectives grabbed the 5-foot-8-inch, hazel-eyed Colaneri as she was headed into Morristown Hospital this morning to visit someone there.
A Lodi police officer who had arrested her once for shoplifting recognized Colaneri from a clear bank surveillance photo distributed by his counterparts in Ridgefield Park this week.
She is now being held on $250,000 bail in the Bergen County Jail, charged with robbery.
It’s unclear how much of the more than $2,000 that CLIFFVIEW PILOT was told was taken in Tuesday morning’s holdup was recovered.
