4 Arrests Made in New Jersey CarJacking at Short Hills Mall in Murder of Dustin Friedland … Press Conference 12/21/13 at 9 PM ET (Suspects Named [Pics]: Karif Ford, Bassim Henry, Kevin Roberts & Hanif Thompson Charged with Felony Murder, Carjacking, Conspiracy)

 

BREAKING OVERNIGHT … FOUR ARRESTS MADE IN SHORT HILLS MALL CARJACKING MURDER …

CNN is reporting that 4 people have been arrested and are in police custody in connection the the fatal carjacking murder of  30 year old Dustin Friedland. “We have four in custody,” said Katherine Carter, spokeswoman for Acting Essex County Prosecutor Carolyn Murray, in an email to The NY Post. Two men were present when the punks shot Friedland in the head as his horrified wife looked on. The two suspects then sped off in the victims SUV that was later found by police behind an abandoned house in Newark, NJ. I guess the police must have arrested two others and will be charging them with accessories after the fact.

They are accused in the Dec. 15 carjacking and killing of Dustin Friedland outside The Mall at Short Hills. The 30-year-old lawyer from Hoboken was shot in the head in the mall parking garage after being confronted by two carjackers, authorities said. The assailants drove off in his silver Range Rover, which was found the next morning in Newark, about 10 miles from Short Hills.

The four face charges of murder, felony murder, carjacking, conspiracy, possession of a weapon and possession of a weapon for unlawful purpose. They were arrested between late Friday and early Saturday. Three of them were taken into custody in New Jersey, and Henry was arrested in Easton, Pa.

From NJ.com: “We believe that the four arrived in one vehicle, a Suburban,” she said. “Two left in the Suburban and two left in the Range Rover.”

The four were identified as Karif Ford, 31, Basim Henry, 32, Kevin Roberts, 35, all of Newark, and Hanif Thompson, 29, of Irvington. All were being held at the Essex County Correctional Facility on $2 million bail each.

Thompson was taken into custody at his home in Irvington. Ford and Roberts were arrested in Newark. Henry was arrested by an FBI task force at a hotel in Easton, Pa., said Anthony Ambrose, chief of detectives for the Essex County Prosecutor’s Office. He said the arrests began about 9 p.m. Friday and concluded today about 3 a.m.

On a personal note, I have been in this mall and that very parking garage too many times to even remember. When it is reported that this is an upscale mall, it is an upscale mall. I can remember visiting college friends back in the day and going to this mall around Christmas time with some buds dressed in sweat pants and, well let’s just say like typical college kids not caring about fashion design. We were actually followed by mall security and given the stink eye. It is sad to believe that such an act like this could happen at the Short Hills Mall. One has to be familiar with the Short Hills, Madison, Millburn, New Jersey area to understand what I mean. Thankfully they have caught this vermin and they need to be put down like the rabid animals that they are.

      As much as I despise all murdering scum even more important to me is to ensure that the ACTUAL vermin who DID commit the crime are punished.

      Too many innocent folks are sentenced.

      For those who have been proven 500% guilty I wonder if a hanging in the town square at noon would send an effective message?

      I would also be joyful if the USA ensured a job at a living wage for every CITIZEN.

      Ensure there would never be ANY excuse (if there can be one) for committing a crime for financial gain.
