NEWARK, NJ - Acting Essex County Prosecutor Theodore N. Stephens, II, announced today that 61 individuals, including three juveniles, with outstanding warrants for committing violent crimes in Essex County were arrested during a month-long initiative called Operation Clean Sweep.

“This is a quality of life issue. These individuals had outstanding warrants. In some instances, they were charged with weapons possession, aggravated assault, terroristic threats, drug distribution and other very serious crimes,’’ said Acting Prosecutor Stephens.

“The goal was to get those wanted for violent offenses off the street and prevent them from committing new crimes,’’ said Acting Prosecutor Stephens.

Most of the arrests were in Newark, East Orange, Irvington, or Orange. Some of the defendants were apprehended outside of Essex County in nearby counties.

“The criminal justice system can’t work properly if defendants – especially those charged with serious crimes – feel like they can post bail and simply walk away,” U.S. Attorney Craig Carpenito said. “We are proud of the work our law enforcement partners are doing here in Essex County to make sure these defendants are being held to account and made to answer to the courts.”

“The FBI stands ready to assist our local, state, and federal partners in efforts to eradicate violent criminals and fugitives," said FBI Special Agent in Charge Gregory W. Ehrie.

“Under bail reform most defendants are released back into the community, but that release is conditioned upon them returning for their court dates. When they fail to come to court as required it poses a threat to the safety and well-being of the community. Those of us in law enforcement must respond. These arrests should send a clear message that we will seek out and take into custody those who are not reporting as required.’’

The Essex County Prosecutor’s Office made these arrests in conjunction with the Newark, Irvington, Orange and East Orange Police Departments, the Rutgers Police, the Essex County Sheriff, the New Jersey State Police, the U.S. Attorney’s Office, the FBI, the Drug Enforcement Agency and the Bureau of Alcohol, Tobacco, Firearms and Explosives.   

“I want to thank our partners in law enforcement. The success of our efforts depends on cooperation. This initiative, along with so many others, was fruitful because we worked with our law enforcement partners on the state, local and federal levels,’’ said Acting Prosecutor Stephens.

The charges against these defendants are accusations. All defendants are presumed innocent unless and until they enter a guilty plea or are found guilty beyond a reasonable doubt in a court of law.
