FORT LEE, NJ
Just one day after an emotional Safaree appeared on Angie Martinez’s talk show speaking about a traumatic armed robbery he’d experienced just hours earlier, two suspects have been arrested in connection with the jack move.
TMZ (@tmz) reports, two men suspected of robbing Safaree were arrested after cops chased the duo over the George Washington Bridge, from New Jersey into New York. Cops were allegedly in pursuit of the suspects after the robbery in Fort Lee, NJ. Cops followed the pair as they made their way over the bridge. At some point in the chase the pair wrecked the car they were driving in and fled on foot. NYPD joined in the pursuit, and the pair were captured about 12 blocks apart. The bandits were identified as Jonathan Ricketts and Shawn Harewood. After he was robbed, Safaree told the police that he’d been relieved of around $183,000 in cash and jewels by the robbers. No word on if Safaree’s money and jewelry has been recovered yet.
