Man steals 3 luxury vehicles from same house in New Jersey

A 22-year-old man, Alshalik J. Sweat was arrested for allegedly stealing three luxury automobiles from the same house.

He was promptly released from prison within 24 hours of his incarceration.

Sweat’s quick release from jail is a direct byproduct of New Jersey’s 2017 bail reform legislation.

Police in Cliffside Park, New Jersey recovered a fingerprint from a luxury car, which led them to Sweat, who they believe stole three luxury vehicles…all from the same house.

It was a very confident house, as the doors of all three cars had been left open; everyone’s keys were left inside the vehicle and the garage door was also left open (police confirmed).

Here is the make and model of the three luxury cars:

  • Lamborghini Huracan.
  • Mercedes G-Wagon.
  • BMW X7

Cliffside Park Deputy Police Chief Vincent Capano confirmed that all three vehicles had been recovered.

The vehicles were seized, under the direction of the Bergen County Sheriff’s Department – Criminal Identification Bureau.

A forensic examination revealed the fingerprint of the BMW, which would have belonged to Sweat.

Sweat is only 22, but he has a lengthy criminal record, with a number of previous arrests in several Essex County towns and at least one other incident with police in Paramus, New Jersey…which involved a 2018 stolen car chase, according to police records.

Sweat was charged with:

  • Burglary.
  • Flight.
  • Conspiracy.

The 5th Precinct of the Newark, New Jersey Police Department advised that they had captured Sweat.

Capano confirmed that after law enforcement identified Sweat as their attacker, the Cliffside Park Police Department was successful in obtaining an arrest warrant.

Capano also confirmed that the information obtained from Sweat was entered into the National Crime Information Center (NCIC) database.
