"During the course of the investigation, it was determined that the passenger Antonio Guzman, had an active NCIC warrant out of New York City," police noted. All four people were charged with receiving stolen property. De-Leon was charged with driving with an expired license, failing to maintain a lane and improper use of headlights.

De-Leon was released, pending a future court date, because it was determined he has a low risk of committing further offenses, police said. The girl was also released. But "due to extensive out of state criminal history," and Guzman's NCIC warrant, Revas and Guzman were placed in the Morris County Jail, police said.
