A West New York woman wanted in connection with the alleged theft of $40,000 in E-ZPass use by Crown Transportation was arrested Monday in a warrant sweep that netted 15 Hudson County residents, officials said yesterday.
Described as a “duly authorized agent” of Crown Transportation, Dana Tamily, of Polk Street in West New York, was arrested on a warrant for failing to appear in court related to a theft charge, Hudson County Sheriff Frank Schillari said.
Tamily and Crown Transportation have failed to cooperate with the Port Authority E-ZPass administration and failed to make any restitution of money owed for using E-ZPass in Hudson County since 2004, says the criminal complaint filed by the Port Authority.
Arrested on warrants for violation of parole or probation were Jersey City residents Michael Roberts of Astor Place, Martha Rush of Wegman Parkway, Jamel Bolden of Stevens Avenue, Juan Jimenez of Central Avenue, Gregory Williams of Academy Street, and Alyssa Santiago of East 19th Street in Bayonne, Schillari said.
Arrested on warrants for failing to appear in court were Jersey City residents Kevin Williams of Clark Avenue, Angelo Padin of Academy Street, George Williams of Academy Street, and Ramere Parker of Martin Luther King Drive, as well as Juan Hernandez of Hackensack Avenue in Kearny and Latanya Thompson of Palisade Avenue in Union City, Schillari said.
Arrested on warrants for failure to pay child support were Jersey City residents Riscardo Ortiz of Lexington Avenue and Lionel Anderson of Bayview Avenue, Schillari said.
Schillari thanked Jersey City police and the Hudson County Prosecutor’s Office for their help in the warrant sweep.
