TOMS RIVER, New Jersey -

Police say a man who just completed a 15-year prison term for robbing a New Jersey shoe store went back to the same store the day after his release and committed the same crime.

Toms River police said after getting out of the South Woods State Prison in Bridgeton on Friday, Christopher Miller, 40, took a bus on Saturday and went to the Stride Rite 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 tracked down Miller and found the employees' phones in a shopping center garbage can. They found the money in a gutter downspout in the back of the building.

Police said Christopher Miller, who they said formerly lived in Tulsa was being held in the Ocean County jail on $100,000 bail. Authorities said was convicted in 1999 of robbing three stores, including the Stride Rite store.
