New Jersey State Police and authorities in Wayne are on the look out for a trio they say broke into a towing yard and took items from an impounded Porsche.
Two suspects arrived in two white Mercedes sedans outside J&M towing yard in Wayne on July 23 just before 7:30 p.m., police stated in a Facebook post seeking public assistance.
While a woman waited with the vehicles, the male suspects entered the lot and took the items from a Porsche that was involved in an arrest two days earlier.

The two men and women are wanted on suspicion of burglary.
The Porsche was impounded on July 21, after authorities arrested Pedro Hernandez, 20, of the Bronx, after he fled from state troopers during a motor vehicle stop on Route 80, according to police.
When Hernandez was arrested, police found a .45 caliber handgun, drugs and fraudulent documents in his possession. He was charged with weapons offenses, assault by auto, false documents, fraudulent credit cards, eluding, drug offenses, obstruction and money laundering.
He has remained at Passaic County Jail since his arrest.
