CLIFFVIEW PILOT initially withheld their identities as investigators continued to search for two accomplices in the brazen robbery of $2 million in cash, gold and jewelry from a dwelling at the St. Moritz on Gorge Road — all of which has been recovered.
Edgewater police released the names, however: Ramona Mercado Vasquez, a 26-year-old Dominican citizen, and Adonis Sepulveda, 30, also Dominican and a U.S. citizen.
Both were ordered held in the Bergen County Jail by a Municipal Court judge in Edgewater following their arrests yesterday by detectives from Molinelli’s Special Investigations Unit.
They are each charged with two counts of robbery, kidnapping and aggravated assault, as well as a pair of weapons counts and other offenses that include burglary and theft, according to jail records.
Molinelli said area residents “should not be alarmed[,] as we do not think it to be a random incident.”
