According to police, a 14-year-old girl was accused with carjacking at gunpoint in that town in February.
Millburn Police were dispatched to a Millburn residence near the Maplewood border on Feb. 13 in response to an allegation of an armed carjacking.
The resident stated that he came up to his house and parked on the street in front of it, and that a group of five young boys and two young ladies were standing near his driveway.
He stated one of the teens approached him, wearing black jeans and a black puffy jacket, and demanding the keys to his vehicle, a 2018 black Porsche Macan, with a black revolver pointed at him.
The Porsche drove away when the victim handed over his keys. It was discovered two days later in Jersey City.
