On July 10th at 6:35 p.m., the Exxon located at 209 Route 3 East was robbed at gunpoint. Three men arrived at the gas station in a stolen Infiniti and two of the three men entered the gas station convenience store wearing ski masks, Miller said in an email.
They brandished a handgun and robbed the clerk of several hundred dollars. The Anti-Crime Unit followed up on the case and worked with a multitude of police agencies, especially the Elizabeth Police Department.
As a result on September 13th at 6:35 p.m., Taquan Andrews, 20, of Newark, and Ramir Skipwith, 24, of Elizabeth, were each charged with robbery, aggravated assault, theft, unlawful possession of a weapon (handgun), possession of a weapon for an unlawful purpose, conspiracy to commit robbery, and receiving stolen property.
Both Andrews and Skipwith were in custody of the Union County Jail at the time they were charged by the Secaucus Police Department, authorities said.
