TOMS RIVER, N.J. (AP) - Police say a man who just completed a 15-year prison term for robbing a New Jersey shoe store went back there the day after his release and committed the same crime.

Toms River police say that on Saturday afternoon 40-year-old Christopher Miller went to the store he robbed in 1999. They say he demanded cash from two employees, eventually took a cash register containing $389 and fled on foot with the employees’ cellphones.

Police soon tracked down Miller and found the employees’ phones in a shopping center garbage can. They found the money in a downspout in the back of the building.

Miller, who formerly lived in Tulsa, Okla., is being held on $100,000 bail. Authorities didn’t know if he has lawyer or if he would be represented by public defender.
