    An armed man robbed a drive-up ATM customer in Wall yesterday evening, police say.

    Police responded to a reported armed robbery at a Bank of America drive-up ATM machine at Route 35 and 18th Avenue around 9:07 p.m., Wall Township Police Department Chief Robert L. Brice said in a release.

    The victim told police that he was sitting in his vehicle at the ATM machine when an armed man approached and verbally identified himself as a law enforcement officer, Brice said.

    At that point, the suspect ordered the man to withdraw crash from the ATM, subsequently taking the money and the victim’s keys, fleeing toward 18th Avenue, the chief said.
