Getaway Driver Involved in Burglary Arrested in North Bergen


NORTH BERGEN – A man involved in last week’s attempted burglary at the Exxon on 46th street was arrested on January 15, 2015 at 6:18 p.m. in North Bergen. Cesar Trujillo, 33, of Bayonne, NJ was the driver of the 1995 Chevy Tahoe that was used as the getaway vehicle during the armed robbery on January 13, 2015.

According to Captain Irwin of North Bergen Police, a followup investigation using private surveillance cameras is what lead to this arrest. They observed the suspect getting into a white, 1995 Chevy, and were able to use this footage to back track the suspects path.

At around 6:00 p.m. on January 15, 2015, detectives observed the vehicle parked near Bergen Turnpike and Grand Avenue. They then saw Trujillo walking towards the vehicle and at that point they were able to make the arrest. Trujillo consented to a car search where police found an imitation firearm that matched the description of the firearm used last week.

The vehicle was positively identified as the vehicle used January 13th and Trujillo was charged with robbery, unlawful possession of a weapon, and possession of an imitation firearm. Bail was set at $200,000.

Police are still searching for the other suspect involved as well as investigating whether or not this robbery was connected to the robbery that occurred in Union City on the same day. No further information is available at this time.
