Detectives from Bergen County Prosecutor John L. Molinelli’s office charged William “Christopher” Collins, 41, with conspiracy to commit murder and are holding the leader of the infamous James Bond Gang on $750,000 bail.
Collins is one of four men and a 17-year-old male taken into custody last December by a task force consisting of detectives from the Special Investigation Squad of Molinelli’s office, the Bergen County Sheriff’s Office and several Bergen County municipal police departments.
Collins and Whitaker had stolen jewelry from a Teaneck home last December 22nd and as they were driving back to New Jersey, investigators moved in and made the arrest. Both were on intensive parole at the time despite lengthy criminal histories.
Four months ago, investigators got a tip that Collins was plotting to kill one of his co-defendants before the case could go to trial.
