MORRISTOWN, N.J. (AP) - Another member of a carjacking ring that shipped stolen high-end vehicles to West Africa has been sentenced.

A judge in Morris County sentenced Terrence Wilson of Newark to five years in prison Friday. The 41-year-old is one of 17 people to plead guilty.

Authorities recovered 90 cars worth more than $4 million.

Most of the defendants were arrested in October 2015. All have either been sentenced or await sentences ranging from five to 14 years.

Attorney General Christopher Porrino says the group specialized in luxury vehicles such as Mercedes Benz, BMW, Maserati, Porsche, Jaguar and Bentley. Some were taken by carjacking and others were stolen using electronic keys.



The cars were loaded into shipping containers and delivered to ports in New Jersey and New York.
