On Nov. 8, 2012, an individual got out of a 2006 Chevrolet Impala to open a garage door when Tullies and an accomplice got on either side of the car, took it from the victim at gunpoint and drove away. The victim called police, who responded within minutes. A Newark police detective spotted the vehicle and a high-speed chase ensued, ending when the Impala crashed on the shoulder of Routes 1/9, the suspects fled on foot and the detective chased and captured Tullies.

In addition to the prison term, Judge Hayden sentenced Tullies to three years of supervised release and ordered him to pay restitution of $6,486.

U.S. Attorney Fishman credited detectives with the Essex County Prosecutor’s Office, under the Direction of Acting Prosecutor Carolyn A. Murray, and investigators in the U.S. Attorney’s Office with the investigation leading to today’s sentencing.

The government is represented by Assistant U.S. Attorney Elizabeth M. Harris and Assistant U.S. Attorney Jonathan Romankow, acting deputy chief of the general crimes unit, in Newark.
