A third New York City police officer has been charged in the robbery of $1 million worth of perfume from a northern New Jersey warehouse.
Federal authorities arrested Kelvin Jones of Yonkers, N.Y., on Monday. The 28-year-old is accused of renting a truck in Jersey City last month that was used to rob a warehouse in Carlstadt used by In Style USA.
Six other men, including two current NYPD officers, have been arrested. An eighth suspect is still at large. Jones faces a robbery conspiracy charge that carries a maximum prison term of 20 years. A telephone message left for Jones' attorney, Joseph Benedict of New Brunswick, was not immediately returned.
