According to officials, two Paramus NJ police officers were on patrol on Fairview Avenue around 7:00 a.m. when they saw a 2004 Ford Expedition. The officers performed a license plate check and learned that the truck was reported stolen out of Passaic, NJ.
When the Paramus police officers activated their lights, the suspects reportedly kept driving for more than a mile. The truck eventually came to a stop near Fairview Avenue and Concord Drive.
The officers subsequently placed the driver and the passenger under arrest.
When the police officers searched the driver, a 50-year-old Clifton NJ man, they allegedly found a crack pipe.
Police officers also searched the passenger, a 46-year-old Garfield NJ woman, and allegedly discovered several ID cards with different names.
After being arrested and charged, the main suspect was moved to the Bergen County Jail in Hackensack, New Jersey. He was being held at the correctional facility on a $50,000 bail amount.
The other suspect was later released from police custody on her own recognizance.
