Two Newark New Jersey men were arrested after a traffic stop in Secaucus NJ led to the discovery of outstanding warrants.
Sometime after 8:00 p.m., a Secaucus patrol officer reportedly noticed a motor vehicle driving without a tire near the intersection of First Street and Paterson Plank Road in Secaucus, New Jersey.
The police officer pulled over the vehicle and ran a check on the vehicle and the occupants. The officer then learned that two of the vehicle occupants had outstanding warrants for their arrests.
According to authorities, a 35-year-old Newark NJ man in the car had an outstanding no bail warrant issued out of Union County. He also reportedly had a no bail warrant issued out of Essex County. Secaucus police notified Union County authorities, which dispatched two police officers to arrest the suspect.
Additionally, a 19-year-old Newark man in the vehicle allegedly had a warrant for failure to appear on a $25,000 bail out of Newark. He also had an arrest warrant issued for hindering apprehension because he allegedly provided false information to Newark NJ police. The suspect was placed under arrest and later transferred to the Essex County Correctional Facility in Newark, New Jersey.
Secaucus police cited the driver of the vehicle, a Newark NJ resident, for driving without a license and driving without a tire.
