West Orange New Jersey Police Investigate Carjacking at Local Car Wash

West Orange NJ Carjacking LawyersPolice in West Orange New Jersey are looking for two men who allegedly committed a carjacking at a local car wash.

According to law enforcement, the incident occurred at the West Orange Car Wash located at 87 Main Street in West Orange, NJ.

The two suspects reportedly approached the victim while he was waiting for a wash at the business.

One of the suspects allegedly pulled a handgun and pointed it at the victim.

The suspects then allegedly stole the victim’s BMW and fled the scene in the vehicle.

Thankfully, no one was injured during the incident.

The victim immediately notified the West Orange Police Department, which dispatched officers to investigate.

West Orange NJ police are still actively investigating the carjacking. However, at this time there have been no arrests. Additionally, no suspects have been identified in the case thus far.

If police are eventually able to identify and apprehend the suspects, serious criminal charges would likely follow. As set forth by N.J.S.A. 2C:15-2, carjacking is a special kind of robbery or auto theft and carries enhanced penalties because it involves the threat of violence.

A conviction on first degree carjacking charges carries a potential penalty of 10–30 years in New Jersey State Prison. Although most first degree felonies carry a maximum penalty of 20 years in state prison, the penalty for carjacking is enhanced because of the violent nature of the offense.
