LINDEN - Police in Linden are looking for a suspect who allegedly robbed a business manager at gunpoint and tied him up to an office chair earlier this morning.

The manager at the Smith and Solomon truck driving school tells News 12 New Jersey he had just opened up the business at around 8:30 a.m. when a man carrying a gun held him up.
