Secaucus NJ Resident Vehicle Stolen during Test Drive
According to the initial reports, a Secaucus resident was attempting to sell her 1997 Chevy Tahoe on Craiglist when an apparent potential buyer failed to return the vehicle. Apparently, a potential buyer responded to the women’s craigslist add. While showing the potential buyer (suspect) the vehicle, the owner claims she must have left the keys in the vehicle. It is unclear of what happens next but it appears that while the women’s back was turned the suspect entered the driver’s seat and took off in the vehicle and never came back.
The Secaucus police have announced that the vehicle was recovered in Newark, New Jersey just a few hours later. The suspect, if caught, will most likely be charged with theft of moveable property in the third degree, theft by deception in the third degree and joyriding in the fourth degree.
