According to the facts of the case, Pedersen walked into the bank wearing sunglasses, a jacket, white gloves and an orange Titleist hat.
“He passed a note asking for $20,000 with no dye packs,” Trenton Police Detective Sean Gill said in a hearing earlier this year.

Pedersen also indicated he had a bomb strapped to himself, according to Gill.
As the teller counted out the money, the Pedersen grabbed the first stack and ran, Gill said. He got $8,800.
Pedersen was not developed as a suspect until the Dec. 22 bank robbery when Gill said he received a call from a woman who said Pedersen was on Facebook wearing hats that the robber in both heists had also worn.
A neighbor’s outdoor security cameras caught Pedersen leaving the residence on the morning of Dec. 16 wearing the same clothing as the robber.
Found in a car driven by Pedersen were the sunglasses, gloves and hat police believe he wore in the robberies, according to police.
