Multiple members of the West New York and North Bergen Police Departments, as well as those of the Hudson County Sheriff’s Office and relatives of Sheyla Pichardo, all gathered at the West New York Municipal Court Chambers this afternoon to announce two arrests in connection to the incident.

West New York Police Director Robert Antolos praised the collaborative efforts between West New York, North Bergen and the sheriff’s office, before Hudson County Sheriff Frank Schillari revealed the car that killed Pichardo was recovered in Newark around midnight last night.

Johana Rosas-Alvarez, 26, the owner of the vehicle, and Fabian Rodriguez-Calles, 33 – who is believed to be an illegal alien from Ecuador – were the two arrested, Schillari said.

Schillari added that Rodriguez was charged with leaving the scene of an accident with injury, leaving the scene of a fatal accident and endangering and hindering a victim.

Additionally, Rojas Alvarez was charged with hindering apprehension and obstruction of justice. She was not in the car when her boyfriend, who was by himself, struck Pichardo with his vehicle.

Sgt. Bruce Miller, the head of the Hudson County Sheriff’s Office Crash Investigation Unit, was also complimentary of his colleague’s round the clock police work, further stating that Rojas Alvarez reported the car stolen to the Hillside Police Department around 9 a.m. yesterday – shortly after the accident occurred.

North Bergen Mayor Nick Sacco, Assembly Speaker Vincent Prieto (D-32) and West New York Mayor Felix Roque all offered their condolences to the family, before Javier Pichardo, Sheyla’s father, gave an emotional speech in Spanish – breaking down in tears.

    • I’m sure if that were your relative killed you would be a little more appreciative. Would you rather the article read suspects caught case closed??

  1. You must be a heartless ***hole. They solved in 2 days.it sad when people can’t give credit when credit is due.

  2. Angelo… It’s THEIR job. And THEY”RE highly paid to do. If you’re going to criticize at least make sure you know how to spell .

  3. Oh Angelo if only you could spell or utilize proper grammar. You are probably that guy who could not get on the job. I hope you never need the services of the fine men and women who risk their lives daily and are constantly attacked by liberals who are the first to summon for help.

  4. Maybe Angelo is an illegal immigrant like this idiot was that fled the scene. I have a young daughter and you can bet your *** if anyone was going through what these parents are going through you would want this low life sent back to Ecuador in a body bag. Great job the police force on catching this low life he won’t last in prison.
