ANOTHER CVP SCOOP: A woman who reported being held at gunpoint by her husband while driving through New Jersey texted their locations before State Police executed a high-risk stop at the Vince Lombardi Service Area on the Turnpike, taking him into custody and seizing a pellet gun from the car.
Jonathan Hinote, 23, remained held on $25,000 bail in the Bergen County Jail this morning, charged with illegal handgun possession, following yesterday’s incident.
State Police began looking for a red Ford pickup with Alabama registration driven by Hinote yesterday morning.
“His wife was giving updates of their locations via text,” NJSP Sgt. First Class Gregory Williams told CLIFFVIEW PILOT .
The pickup passed through Woodbridge as troopers began narrowing their search, and arrived at “The Vince” around 8:45 a.m.
Troopers swiftly moved in and took the 6-foot-3-inch, 340-pound Hinote into custody without incident after spotting a black handgun in plain view, Williams said.
Hinote was being held on $25,000 bail in the Bergen County Jail, charged with illegal handgun possession.
