Newark NJ Police Search for Trio of Alleged Carjackers

Newark New Jersey Carjacking ChargesNewark NJ law enforcement is searching for three people accused of committing a violent carjacking on a city street.

According to Bergen County authorities, the three suspects stole two motor vehicles while brandishing handguns. The car thefts occurred during the late-night hours near North 6th Street and Dickerson Street in Newark, New Jersey.

The victims were sitting in their parked cars when the suspects allegedly approached them and pointed firearms at their heads. The suspects reportedly ordered the victims to exit their vehicles. The suspects then allegedly drove off in the stolen cars.

The victims later told Newark NJ police that the suspects were using a pistol and an AK-47 to commit the armed robberies.

If police can eventually figure out the identities of the alleged carjackers, it is likely that the culprits would face severe criminal penalties. As set forth by N.J.S.A. 2C:15-2, anyone who commits an auto theft while threatening the victim’s life with a deadly weapon can be charged with a first degree felony. While most first degree crimes in New Jersey carry a maximum penalty of 20 years in NJ State Prison, carjacking is treated more seriously and carries a potential punishment of 30 years in state prison.
