Gas Station Bandit Arrested After a Second Hit on an Avenel Gas Station

Woodbridge police arrested Arthur Allen Montague, 27, of Avenel for two different robberies of gas stations, right down the street from where he lives.


A man being held in the Tuesday robbery of an Avenel gas station may be the same robber who held up another Avenel gas station back in December.

Woodbridge police arrested Arthur Allen Montague, 27, of Avenel on suspicion of the armed robbery of the BP gas station on Route 1 South on January 15 at 8:13 pm.

Police said a white male wearing a black hoodie pulled down around his face appeared at the BP station and confronted the attendant while holding a knife on him. The robber demanded all the attendant's money, plus two cartons of cigarettes grabbed from a box on the floor. 

The suspect, police said, grabbed a white cordless phone and fled in an apparent attempt to keep the gasoline station attendant from calling for help. The attendant wasn't injured in the robbery.

An immediate search of the area brought police to Montague's door, which was at City Motel on Route 1 where he resides, just down the road from the BP station he robbed. The cigarettes and money was found nearby.

A further investigation resulted in Montague being charged in the December 19, 2012 holdup of a Fuel One gas station, also located on Route 1 in Avenel.

Montague was charged with two counts of robbery, two counts of possession of a weapon, and two counts of possession of a weapon for an unlawful purpose.

He was transported to the Middlesex County Adult Correctional Facility in North Brunwick, where he is being held on $40,000 bail with no 10 percent option.

when you go for visitiation with your "man" please bring bail money and take his butt out of Avenel. I just keep hoping another business will come in and buy out more of these properties and close the motels like Wawa did!
gam January 18, 2013 at 04:06 AM
Oh and when did he decide he "knew" he did something wrong and was sorry?? The first time he held up a hard working individual with a knife or the second time after he got caught?

Hey will someone else to go this trashes facebook site and tell her she's not blocked!! http://www.facebook.com/#!/cassidy.hilesmontague when there check out the video of it getting it's tongue pierced....It's a real class act. Have fun in the prison waiting room. Eventually trash like you will be on the other side of the cell door.

I'm just wondering how she can afford to support this child while her "man" is in jail? She seems like a lot of the other parents i deal with on a daily basis! Her child is just another "paycheck" if she even qualifies for government assistance, that she is most likely not even entitled to. As for her man, I hope he sits in jail for a long time and really thinks about what he was doing for "his son"! Oh he's sorry, he's sorry, he's sorry. How many times have we all heard that these type of people are great parents and then DCF comes in and proves them wrong. To be honest, if DCF wanted to come in and take your child they would. Your husband, who actually is not your husband, is not a good man. He did not do what he did for his son, he did it because he thought he could get away with it. He was terribly mistaken apparently, and I personally hope he rots in a jail cell for a very long time, thinking how sorry he was/is that he did what he never should have done. If it were up to me personally, I would make sure that he NEVER EVER saw his son ever again, then how sorry would he be?

Too bad he didn't resist arrest. This dirt bag would have been dispatched long ago if NJ was a concealed carry state.

jay. s January 19, 2013 at 04:14 AM
Let's see, he robs not one but 2, and cigs, a real stand up citizen to this community. Let me ask this, if you were the gas attending guy, would you say he just needs help I'm not pressing charges? Also, has he been arrested before?
Irina January 19, 2013 at 04:18 AM
He's a registered SEX OFFENDER and THIEF....What part of that do you NOT understand? OMG are you that freaken STUPID. http://www.njsp.org/info/reg_sexoffend.html Go ahead and defend that. You're a pathetic joke.
Irina January 19, 2013 at 04:19 AM
Pathetic at times sure....But NOT a SEX OFFENDER and THIEF!
jay. s January 19, 2013 at 04:22 AM
I'm gonna hold a fund raiser for this up standing citizen of woodbridge, I'm sure the places he robbed with a DEADLY WEAPON will be willing to hold it there and kick in the rest of the money he STOLE!!!!
Irina January 19, 2013 at 04:27 AM
@Jay.s You ask if he's ever been arrested before? http://www.njsp.org/info/reg_sexoffend.html Take a look at THIS one....LOL...

Hey Mayor M, how about getting rid of all these trash motels along the highway, instead of adding to our problems with a pot dispensing store? They bring nothing but trouble, and have done so for dozens of years. I live in a lovely little Avenel neighborhood with wonderful neighbors, unfortunately we are 3 blocks from these dumps. Do you know how many cars, houses, garages and sheds have been robbed? Almost every culprit was living at these motels. Do you know how many times the sheriff's dept (BTW Thanks everyone!) has had to go door-to-door to warn everyone a sex offender moved into one of these places??? Take some action, before a real tragedy occurs.
slyfox1961 January 19, 2013 at 02:42 PM
@i have spoken: why are you wasting your breath with this idiot piece of trash? Everyone reading can connect the dots with her posts.

A quick remember, folks: watch the LANGUAGE. This is a family-friendly site.
Irina January 19, 2013 at 04:04 PM
Sorry Debbie.... Notice it was the Trash family with the foul language? Should we be surprised? Just makes it obvious what kind of "people" they are. Look at the other post from baby-mommy (cassidy) of Mr. SEX OFFENDER/THIEF....another "F" bomb. Just thinking my tax dollars are gonna support these types makes me sick.
TD January 19, 2013 at 08:02 PM
Yes and as sick as he obviously is his victims were all family members!!!!! What a dirtbag and Cassidy you obviously have no self esteem to be with such a loser.......I feel bad for your son, the odds are not in his favor with you too as parents!!!!

Can't figure out if I'm glad or sad that AJ is back in jail again. He should have taken the help he was offered at his sentencing on 2/8/08 verse being a cocky SOB and stating with his victims present in the court room "No I don't need or want any help, I don't have a problem...just send me to NJ State Prisons and let me get this over with"
Sayreville Mom of 3 March 07, 2013 at 01:34 PM
AJ has a kid now......Dear Mother of this child.....RUN, RUN as fast as you can, DON'T Look back...please I am begging you .... for the love of your child.....run far away. Trust me...AJ is no good. He is a very sick individual. It's in his blood. Look up his father.....Centra State Prison in NJ....same 1st name. They both "like" children family members as their victims........both male and female. TAKE THAT BABY AND RUN CHICKIE....RUN. Please I am begging you. And trust me I know the facts and AJ's history.......RUN, DON'T LOOK BACK....PLEASE and THANK YOU.
