Police said they found a loaded hand gun and cash believed to be stolen during the robbery on Farmer at the time of his arrest.
Sgt. Mark Enright said officers did a fantastic job and no one was hurt despite the potential for danger due to the use of a loaded gun in the robbery.
"The heroic efforts of our police officers to protect the citizens of Trenton is unparalleled," Trenton Police Chief Jim Nardone said. "It's a great catch by a great bunch of police officers."
