Two alleged Crips gang members are convicted of Elizabeth armed robbery spree |

Two alleged Crips gang members are convicted of Elizabeth armed robbery spree | "Two alleged members of the Crips Street gang were found guilty today of an hour-long robbery spree, in which they drove through the streets of Elizabeth and held up nearly a dozen pedestrians with a pair of loaded, sawed-off shotguns.
Tony Canty, 29, and Jacquan Lee, 22, each face up to life in prison for the 2007 crimes when sentenced on September 2, according to Assistant Prosecutor Joshua McMahon.

Share It took a jury in Superior Court in Elizabeth two days of deliberation to find both men guilty on 16 counts of armed robbery and 16 counts of weapons offenses, following a month-long trial before Judge Miriam Span.
Authorities said it was in the early morning hours of July 30, 2007 that the two men, along with a third, unknown man, cruised the city’s streets in a car driven by Lee’s girlfriend, in search of easy targets.
They made at least three stops, jumping out of the car to confront groups gathered on street corners, stoops and outside bars. The men surrounded the victims and ordered them to empty their wallets and turn over other valuables, including cell phones and iPods.
The youngest victim was 14 years old and the oldest was 21, the assistant prosecutor said."
