New York Woman Arrested Twice In One Night in Cedar Grove
After being released by police for shoplifting and driving with a suspended license, she was again arrested a second time after attempting to drive without a license.
A New York woman was arrested twice in the same night after racking up an extensive list of charges in Cedar Grove.
Alexis M. Huchko, 32, of Haverstraw, N.Y., was arrested at approximately 1 a.m. on Sunday March 3 after attempting to steal $193.84 worth of food and household-cleaning items from the CVS Pharmacy located at 387 Pompton Ave. in Cedar Grove, police said.
In addition, police discovered Huchko was in possession of a burnt spoon with heroin residue and she had driven to the pharmacy while her driving privileges in New York were under suspension, police said.
Huchko was processed at Cedar Grove police headquarters and released pending a municipal court appearance.
About an hour after her release, however, Huchko was re-arrested after she was seen driving her car again on Pomton Avenue, just a few blocks from the CVS, despite prior warnings not to drive, police said.
Huchko was re-arrested and charged with driving with a suspended license.
"She faces potentially enhanced penalties for the second offense," said Cedar Grove Police Chief Richard Vanderstreet.
Following her second arrest, Huchko was again released pending a March 20 municipal court appearance where she is charged with shoplifting, possession of drug paraphernalia and two counts of driving with a suspended license.
