Incident Details: On 11/13/2020 at about 5:25 PM Hoboken Police received a call from a resident regarding suspicious activity in the uptown area.  The caller stated that they noticed two males carrying garbage bags and they appeared to be following a FedEx truck that was making package deliveries. Uniformed officers and Detectives responded to the area to investigate this call.  Detectives Fabian Quinones, Connor Milne and Michael Losurdo arrived on scene to investigate. They noticed the FedEx truck parked in the area but no one was near it.  Shortly after Officer William Bullock noticed the two males matching the callers description walking south on Clinton Street.  Officer Bullock was able to direct the Detectives to this area, the Detectives began to follow the males.  While investigating Detective Losurdo noticed both males had large bags over their shoulders and the bags were filled to capacity.  In the area of 9th and Monroe Streets the Detectives were able to stop both males and question them regarding the bags they were carrying.  Roman admitted to stealing items from a Walgreens in West New York and couldn’t remember where the other packages were from. Rosado provided a false name to the Detectives.  On scene other parcel packages were located that did not belong to either male. Both males were arrested. While being arrested both males were found to be in possession of Drug Paraphernalia (Crack Pipe) and a hypodermic needle/syringe.  Once at the police station it was discovered that Rosado provided a fake name and his real identity was discovered, he was also charged with hindering his own apprehension. Rosado was found to have three active warrants issued by the Cumberland County Superior Court.  Numerous packages were able to be returned to the owners within the City of Hoboken. Both Rosado and Roman’s charges were placed on warrants and they were both transported to the Hudson County Correctional Facility.
