Vineland police said they have arrested two Passaic County residents for driving off in a car left running while the vehicle’s owner was inside a Dunkin Donuts shop.
Police said David K. Mourning Jr. of Newfield, Gloucester County, had gone into the Dunkin Donuts in the 900 block of North Main Road on Sunday when he saw someone drive away in his vehicle.
Mourning’s car was later found on West Chestnut Avenue, where Justin R. Torres and Amy Reyes, 36, both of Sandy Court in Paterson, were arrested and charged with theft of a motor vehicle, police said. They were also each charged with possession of marijuana under 50 grams and possession of drug paraphernalia, police said.
Reyes was also wanted on outstanding warrants issued from municipal courts in Paterson and Lodi, Bergen County.
Reyes and Torres were taken to the Cumberland County jail in Bridgeton, where they were held in lieu of posting 10 percent of $20,000 bail each.
