Three New Jersey men were arrested Tuesday morning in a grand larceny incident in Roslyn Heights around 1:40 a.m., police announced.

Police say three suspects in a 2006 green Pontiac G6 stopped outside a property on Field Lane and walked up to a BMW parked in the driveway. They got inside the car and tried to start it, but they couldn’t. Before fleeing the scene in their Pontiac G6, the individuals stole a black Canada Goose jacket from the BMW, the authorities said.

Soon after, officers saw the Pontiac G6 traveling westbound on the Long Island Expressway and performed a vehicle and traffic law stop near exit 34. Tyquan Meadows, 24, of 112 Boylan St. in Newark; Nasir Solomon, 18, of 39 N Burnett Street in East Orange; and Nasir Usher, 23, of 43 Eder Terrace in South Orange were all arrested without incident.

The defendants are all charged with fourth-degree grand larceny, second-degree attempted grand larceny and fourth-degree conspiracy, police said. Meadows is also charged with seventh-degree criminal possession of a controlled substance and operating a motor vehicle by an unlicensed driver, they said.

All three suspects will be arraigned Tuesday at Hempstead’s First District Court at 99 Main St.
