Stolen state police SUV used in 2 robberies, theft of gas
NORTH BRUNSWICK, N.J. (AP) — New Jersey state police say an unmarked police SUV stolen from a trooper’s home has been used in two robberies and the theft of gas from a service station.
The SUV was stolen Saturday night or early Sunday in North Brunswick and contained several uniforms, two issued weapons and other issued equipment.
Authorities say someone using the SUV stopped a truck driver on Sunday morning on the southbound New Jersey Turnpike in South Brunswick and stole cash from the driver.
About 30 minutes later, the person fueled the SUV at a gas station in Colonia and left without paying. The person then stopped a cab at the Woodbridge Center Mall in Woodbridge and stole cash from the driver.
Investigators recovered the SUV late Sunday morning in North Brunswick.
