Four NJ Men Arrested for Black Friday Armed Robbery

Federal agents in New Jersey have arrested four men in connection with the armed robbery of a Target store in Union on Black Friday.

Darrell Carter, 23, of Irvington, Daquaan Vaughn, 35, of Newark, Lavell Jones, 27, of East Orange and Maryland Liggins, III, 28, of Newark are charged with one count of committing armed robbery.  Carter and Vaughn are charged with an additional count of using a firearm during a crime of violence.

The complaint charges that the four men carried out an armed robbery of the Target store on Springfield Avenue in Union the day after Thanksgiving last year.

Each played different roles.  Carter and Vaughn entered the store and robbed employees at gunpoint, while Liggins served as the getaway driver and Jones posed as a shopper in the store and acted as a lookout.  They got away with $50,000 in cash.

The armed robbery charge carries a maximum penalty of 20 years in prison.  Using a firearm in a violent crime carries a potential penalty of life in prison and a mandatory minimum sentence of seven years.
