They were carrying "multiple driver's licenses, credit cards and other identifications," he said.

Agustin Yolydelarosa, 21, and Fransisco Garcia-Moreno, 23, were taken into custody and charged with attempting to receive stolen property and conspiracy to commit theft

The driver, Garcia-Moreno, was charged with driving without a license, while Yolydelarosa was charged with allowing an unlicensed person to operate a motor vehicle.

Yolydelarosa also was charged with impersonation.

Both also received failure-to-wear-seatbelt summonses before being released, under New Jersey's 2017 bail reform law, pending a hearing in Central Judicial Processing Court in Hackensack.
