A 22-year-old man, Alshalik J. Sweat was arrested for allegedly stealing three luxury automobiles from the same home.

He was promptly released from prison within 24 hours of being jailed.

Sweat’s rapid release from prison is a direct byproduct of the 2017 New Jersey bail reform legislation.

The Cliffside Park, New Jersey police recovered a fingerprint from a luxury automobile, which led them to Sweat, who they allege has stolen three luxury vehicles … all from the same home.

It was a very trusting home, as the doors to all three cars were left open; the keys to each were left inside the vehicle and the garage door was also left open (police have confirmed).

Here are the make and model of the three luxury cars:

  • Lamborghini Huracan.
  • Mercedes G-Wagon.
  • BMW X7

Cliffside Park Deputy Police Chief, Vincent Capano has confirmed that all three vehicles have been recovered.

The vehicles have been impounded, under the direction of the Bergen County Sheriff's Department - Bureau of Criminal Identification.

A forensic examination lifted the finger print from the BMW, allegedly belonging to Sweat.

Sweat is only 22 years old, yet he has a long criminal record, featuring a number of previous arrests in several Essex County cities and at least one more incident with the police in Paramus, New Jersey … which involved a stolen car chase in 2018, according to police records.

Sweat has been charged with:

  • Burglary.
  • Theft.
  • Conspiracy.

Newark, New Jersey Police Department’s 5th Precinct advised that they had captured Sweat.

Capano confirmed that after law enforcement identified sweat as their offender, the Cliffside Park Police Department was successful in obtaining an arrest warrant.

Capano also confirmed that the information obtained from Sweat was entered into the National Crime Information Center (NCIC) database.
