Irvington Man Pleads Guilty to Role in Carjacking Ring, Gets Prison Time

Irvington NJ Carjacking SuspectA man from Irvington NJ has been sentenced to more than a decade in federal prison after pleading guilty to carjacking charges.

The 37-year-old Irvington suspect was part of a carjacking ring that allegedly stole expensive automobiles and then shipped them to foreign countries, including West Africa.

More than 20 people were arrested in October 2015 in connection with the international carjacking operation. The official law enforcement investigation into the criminal enterprise was dubbed “Operation 17 Corridor.” Among the agencies conducting the investigation were the New Jersey State Police, the NJ Division of Criminal Justice, and the Port Authority of New York.

The investigation reportedly uncovered evidence that the suspect helped to traffic the stolen cars, which are said to have a value of more than $500,000. Law enforcement recovered stolen vehicles through NJ, including Port Newark and Port Elizabeth.

The suspect was charged with a number of criminal offenses, including money laundering. The Irvington NJ suspect eventually reached a plea deal with federal prosecutors and avoided a criminal trial.

The suspect recently appeared in US District Court in Trenton NJ for a formal sentencing hearing. In accordance with the recommendations of federal prosecutors, the judge sentenced the suspect to a term of incarceration of 12 years in a federal penitentiary.
