HILLSIDE – Shortly after 5 a.m. four masked men in a Chrysler, possibly a 200 or Sebring, robbed the Union Toll Plaza on the Garden State Parkway, according to the New Jersey State Police.
The left rear passenger showed a gun and robbed toll lane seven in which the vehicle was stopped. The right rear passenger exited the vehicle and robbed the collector in lane four.
There were no injuries to either toll collector and a quantity of cash was taken from both toll booths, authorities said.
Surveillance footage showed the license plate of the involved car. Following that information, State Police detectives located a silver Chrysler 300 at the registered address, but discovered that the car had the front plate removed and had not been moved for some time. It appears that the robbers stole the plate to apply to a very similar vehicle that they used for the robbery.
Police are asking anyone with information about the robbery to call detectives at the Bloomfield Station on the Parkway at 1-973-338-1370. All crime tips can be offered anonymously.
State Police said that members of the public should not approach a vehicle they believe may be connected to this crime because those involved are armed and considered dangerous.
