Two Dover, NJ women were busted for allegedly leading police on a dangerous high-speed pursuit.
Authorities said that a Denville police officer was driving on Route 10 when he saw a black Toyota Camry reported as stolen out of South Orange, NJ.
The officer tried to pull the vehicle over on Route 10 near Ridgedale Avenue, but the driver allegedly sped off and fled in the direction of Route 287.
The chase continued south on Route 287, before it eventually moved to Route 24 and then to Route 78 East. According to police, the suspect’s vehicle reached speeds of up to 100 mph.
Several Morris County police agencies, including the Dover Police Department and the East Hanover Police Department, assisted in the pursuit and eventual arrests on a dead-end street in Newark, NJ.
The driver was charged with receiving stolen property, reckless driving, careless driving, driving with a suspended license, and possession of drug paraphernalia. Meanwhile, the passenger was charged with possession of drug paraphernalia.
