Delaware police recover stolen car during traffic stop

DOVER, Del. (AP) — Police in Delaware say that they recovered a car stolen from New Jersey during a traffic stop.

The Delaware State Police said in a news release that officers arrested a 22-year-old and 25-year-old woman from Delaware after they were stopped in a stolen 2018 Hyundai Sonata late Friday night.

The release said an officer stopped them for a seatbelt and equipment violation in the Woodside area south of Dover.

A computer search revealed that the car had been reported stolen out of Lakewood Township, New Jersey in August.

The women face charges including receiving stolen property.
