ALERT: Suspects Wanted for Citywide Armed Robberies in Newark

By rlsmetro on

Police departments around Essex County have been alerted for suspects occupying a vehicle and wanted for multiple armed robberies in Newark during the overnight hours. 

According to police, a ’be on the lookout’ has been placed for a red 2017 Rav 4 occupied by several males armed with weapons and robbing random people in the city. 

Police say the vehicle has a reported NJ license plate number "H55-JGT" and is confirmed stolen. 

If you are seeing this vehicle parked in your neighborhood, please call Newark Police at 973-733-6000 or your local police department.

Residents, if a male relative just arrived home and appeared tired but was not at work -or anywhere constructive-,  please question their whereabouts then contact the police if their explanation seems suspicious. 

Police said it is vital not to harbor suspects who commit felonies in our homes.

There were no serious injuries reported in any of the robberies.
