Newark fugitive unit makes arrests in separate carjacking, armed robbery

Reported by – Mar 3, 2017

Newark – Officers with Newark’s fugitive unit arrested two men accused in a separate armed robbery and carjacking incidents in the city, police said Friday.

Michael Crowley, 26, of Newark, was charged with receiving stolen property after detectives linked him to a May 2011 carjacking at Varsity Road and Sanford Avenue, according to Public Safety Director Anthony Ambrose.

Two armed assailants demanded a woman turn over her car and fled the area, police said.

Officers spotted the stolen car that day near Elizabeth and Meeker avenues, where the driver and two passengers took off running. Police also arrested a juvenile and issued an arrest warrant for Crowley.

In a statement, Ambrose said an “extensive and ongoing investigation” led city fugitive unit detectives to arrest Jarrette Shelton, 29, of East Orange.

Shelton was charged with robbery and weapons offenses in a Nov. 27, 2016 armed holdup of a man in the city’s West Ward, according to authorities. Crowley and Shelton were each arrested this week.

  1. This was supposed to be for non violent offenders. That is how Atlantic county is doing it. I guess Essex and most counties north don’t consider robbery violent. That’s just regular shit there.
