Two Suspects Arrested in Paramus, Allegedly Had Stolen Truck, Stolen Credit Cards

Police recently arrested two people who allegedly drove through Paramus NJ in a stolen truck.

According to law enforcement, two Paramus police officers were on patrol and driving on Fairview Avenue around 7:00 a.m. when they came across a 2004 Ford Expedition. The officers performed a license plate check on the vehicle and reportedly discovered that the truck had been reported stolen out of Passaic, New Jersey.

When the Paramus police officers turned on their lights, the suspects allegedly ignored the obvious signal to pull over and instead kept driving on the roadway for more than a mile. The truck finally pulled over near Fairview Avenue and Concord Drive.

The officers subsequently arrested the driver and the passenger.

When the police officers conducted a search of the driver, a 50-year-old Clifton man, they allegedly discovered him in possession of a crack pipe.

The police officers also searched the passenger, a 46-year-old Garfield woman, and allegedly found her in possession of several ID cards that had different names on them.

The driver faces serious criminal charges for receiving stolen property, eluding police, and possession of drug paraphernalia. The passenger avoided the most serious criminal charges, but he was charged with possession of stolen credit cards.

After being placed under arrest and processed, the main suspect was transported to the Bergen County Jail in Hackensack, New Jersey. He was being held at the jail in lieu of a $50,000 bail amount.

Sometime later, the other suspect secured her release from police custody on her own recognizance.
