Cops Find Car Stolen from Wyckoff Poll Worker on Election Day

Man was driving the stolen car through Paterson, police say.

A car that was stolen from a Wyckoff woman working at a polling location during the recent primary elections has been returned to its owner.

According to a release from Wyckoff Police Chief Benjamin Fox, the Passaic County Prosecutor's Office alerted local cops last week that they found the Lincoln Town Car, which had been reported stolen the week before from a parking lot outside a Wyckoff primary polling location.

The 28-year-old Paterson man driving the car when Passaic cops used a license plate scanner to ID it told police he had purchased it for $500, and that he could not identify who sold it to him, Fox said.

The man was charged with possession of stolen property, Fox said.

Passaic County officials impounded the car and alerted the Wyckoff woman to its whereabouts, police said.
