Defendant Arrested & Charged with Two Counts of Receiving Stolen Property in Hoboken, New Jersey
The Hoboken Police were able to arrest and charge a twenty-one year old man with two counts of receiving stolen property stemming from a motor vehicle theft that happened earlier in the month. Apparently, the victim left her keys in the car while it was parked in a parking garage on Madison Street. As a result the vehicle was stolen. About a week later, the victim noticed what she thought was her car parked next to a construction site, filled with construction material. When the victim approached the vehicle, the Defendant attempted to plead with the women to not notify the Police.
However, the women decided to call the Hoboken Police Department to notify them of her findings. When they arrived, the Defendant had fled the scene. About a week after that, the Defendant was spotted by a Hoboken Police Officer removing snow from 235 Garden Street. The Defendant was apprehended without incident and charged with two counts of receiving stolen property, due in large part because their was no direct evidence establishing that the Defendant actual stole the vehicle. The Defendant is currently being held in the Hudson County Jail on a $300,000 bail.
