Suspects sought in number of gas station robberies in several North Jersey towns
Investigations are underway in several North Jersey towns after at least six gas station robberies in the past few days.
The robberies consisted of several different cars, at several different stations including three in Newark, one in Belleville, one in Orange, and one in Harrison at the Speedway station on Passaic Avenue.
The incident in Harrison happened early Sunday morning, and video has been provided by police.
News 12 New Jersey is being told the suspects got away with about $315 after taking it from the gas attendants' front pocket when those suspects showed a black handgun.
Union police recovered the vehicle, a Silver Dodge Intrepid, which was actually found in Newark.
Harrison police are now in possession of the car as part of its investigation.
The incident in Belleville happened yesterday around 7 a.m. at Barbone's Gas Station on Franklin Street.
Three black males were seen in a black Audi Q5, which was reported stolen out of Livingston on the same day.
The driver asked for $10 worth of gas and after the gas was in, a backseat passenger grabbed the attendant's hand and pointed a small black handgun demanding cash.
The attendant pulled away, and the vehicle took off and hasn't been seen since.
Meanwhile, in Newark, Police Director Anthony Ambrose says his officers are pursuing leads and cannot disclose any information at this time.
Orange police are also continuing their investigation.
