Scotch Plains, New Jersey (My9NJ) - A Union County SWAT team was called to “The Reserve” townhouse complex off Route 22 after earlier reports of a bank robbery at the TD Bank at the corner of Park Ave. and Mountain Ave. on Sunday afternoon.
A resident in the complex who requested anonymity reported the team entered a unit in the 300 block of Donato Circle at approximately 4:25 p.m. after a heavily armed police presence for more than an hour. Of the police presence, she said, "These guys aren't messin' around; big guns."
