Three Arrested After Crashing Stolen Motor Vehicle in Morris County

Morris County

Morris County officials announce the arrests of three individuals after crashing a stolen high-end motor vehicle linked to multiple crimes throughout New Jersey.

At approximately 7:30 a.m., on August 17, Morris County law enforcement was alerted to a stolen vehicle traveling State Highway 15 South. 

A short time later, the Wharton Police Department was dispatched to a motor vehicle crash in the area of SH 15 South and Mt. Pleasant Avenue.

Upon arrival, officers confirmed the vehicle involved in the crash was a 2021 Bentley Bentayga, stolen from a residential garage in Rumson the previous day. 

Upon crashing the vehicle, three males fled from the scene.

Officers from surrounding agencies responded to the scene and coordinated efforts to apprehend the males who crashed the stolen Bentley. 

Investigative and search efforts, assisted by the Morris County Sheriff’s K-9 Unit and the Morris County Office of Emergency Management, resulted in all three males being taken into custody within the surrounding areas.

As a result of law enforcement efforts and investigation, the following were charged by complaint warrant and lodged in the Morris County Correctional Facility in accordance with Bail Reform:

Rajohn Robinson, 27, of Newark, Eion Johnson, 18, of East Orange and Dahmar Robinson, 21, of Jersey City, have all been charged with Unlawful Taking of a Means of Conveyance (Motor Vehicle), Theft (Motor Vehicle) and Obstruction by Flight.

Morris County Prosecutor Robert J. Carroll commends our Team of Morris County law enforcement officers involved in this incident for acting quickly and professionally. 

He stated, “Thankfully, there were no injuries to any of our citizens or responding personnel. This is yet another regrettable incident of vehicle theft that greatly transcends the “joy ride.” Here we have the merging of several of the most dangerous current challenges we all face with the unprecedented rise in vehicle thefts.”
