  1. any wagers on the thief?
    Another ‘young man’ from newark? Just asking for a friend

  2. Apparently the perpetrators were a bunch of teenagers who stole two vehicles from garage in Wyckoff. The one car got away but the other was chased by police along Rte 17 into Saddle River where it hit a pole and overturned causing both sides of Rte 17 to be closed due to downed wires. The perpetrators then ran from the crashed vehicle and took off. They were eventually caught. But why bother chasing them? Just let them go because they automatically get a get out of jail card because they’re juveniles. Sarcasm……

  3. It was only the reflection of lack of opportunities in their formative lives……………………..

  4. Very true why bother doing a high-speed chase they could’ve killed someone else. We’re talking about a stolen car, which I’m sure they were insured let’s not be stupid like Los Angeles Police Department doing high-speed pursuits in making others get hurt or killed. Is it that important to chase 150 mile an hour driver don’t think so.

  5. The problem with ICP pursuits in a police vehicle, what happened if you can do an accident and you hurt someone else or you get hurt get killed, it’s really worth it at the end of the day talking about a stolen car. Not a person that’s being kidnapped, that’s different.
