Newark Police officials report the arrests of Tysean Ware, 19, Raheem Pamplin, 21, a 16-year-old male, and a 17-year-old male, all from Newark, following the pursuit of a carjacked vehicle yesterday.
“I commend Newark Police for their bravery and tenacity in apprehending armed carjacking suspects,” Newark Interim Public Safety Director Raul Malave said.
“I am also most grateful to the New Jersey State Police and to the Essex County Sheriff’s Office for their assistance during this incident.”
According to police officials, at approximately 1 p.m., Police responded to the 200 block of Frelinghuysen Avenue on a call of an armed carjacking.
A victim sitting inside his vehicle, a 2019 Mercedes Benz S560, was approached by two males who arrived in a black BMW X5 and robbed him at gunpoint.
Police said that two of the suspects fled in the victim’s vehicle, with a third suspect, the driver of the black BMW, following.
The suspect vehicle had been reported stolen and was wanted in connection with a business robbery on July 5 at Conoco Gas Station, located at 1434 McCarter Highway.
According to Police, the carjacked Mercedes Benz was located and recovered, parked in the yard of a vacant property in the 200 block of Orange Avenue in Irvington.
Newark Police observed the BMW in the area of Avon Avenue and South 13th Street and attempted a motor vehicle stop.
The driver of the BMW disregarded Police attempts to pull him over and a pursuit was initiated, with the driver leading Police onto Route 78 West, into Berkley Heights, and then back into Newark.
Members of the New Jersey State Police and Essex County Sheriff’s Office also responded during the pursuit.
Newark Police ended the pursuit at 17th Avenue and Irvine Turner Boulevard.
According to Police, the BMW X5 was again observed by Newark Police after it struck a light pole at South 11th Street and Madison Avenue.
Three occupants fled the vehicle on foot. Two suspects fled inside a building in the 800 block of South 11th Street.
Police said that Tysean Ware, also known as Dashawn Ware, was arrested outside that building without further incident. He faces charges of receiving stolen property, eluding, resisting arrest, and obstruction of the administration of the law.
Responding officers obtained a search warrant of an apartment inside the building, where the other suspects were located and were safely apprehended.
The search warrant recovered a Glock 19 handgun with an extended magazine, a black ghost gun, three additional extended magazines, 14 decks of heroin, three small bags of CDS cocaine, the BMW X5, and four cell phones.
According to police officials, Pamplin faces charges of unlawful possession of a weapon, manufacture, transport, disposition and defacement of weapons and dangerous instruments and appliances, CDS possession and possession of prohibited weapons (large-capacity magazine and hollow-point ammunition).
A 16-year-old male and a 17-year-old male were also arrested. Each is charged with unlawful possession of a weapon, possession of prohibited weapons, and CDS possession.
This investigation is ongoing.
Additional charges are pending in connection with at least one other robbery and a carjacking that may have been committed using the BMW X5.
