Newark NJ Men Arrested for Armed Robbery
Law enforcement in Newark New Jersey recently arrested three people who allegedly used a handgun to commit an armed robbery.
The suspects have been accused of committing the robbery late at night near the intersection of Chestnut Street and Oliver Street in the Ironbound area of Newark. The victims, a male and a female, ran from the scene of the theft and found two Newark police officers on patrol nearby. The victims told the cops about the robbery, with law enforcement subsequently searching the surrounding area for the suspects.
Police eventually found the suspects in a Ford Expedition SUV, not far from the site of the armed robbery.
Newark police officers searched the suspect’s vehicle and allegedly discovered a loaded .9mm handgun, crack cocaine, heroin, and marijuana. A computer check on the firearm reportedly turned up a report that the weapon had been reported stolen out of South Orlando, Florida.
The suspects are from Newark, NJ. They face several criminal charges, including charges for armed robbery, drug possession, possession of a weapon for an unlawful purpose, and unlawful possession of a weapon.
