A total of 21 people were charged in connection to an international carjacking and car theft ring that targeted luxury vehicles in New Jersey and New York.

The New Jersey Attorney General's Office also said 90 stolen vehicles have been recovered.

According to investigators, models sought included Land Rover, Mercedes Benz, BMW, Maserati, Porsche, Jaguar and Bentley.

Shippers would load the cars into shipping containers, the A.G.'s office said, which were taken to ports for transport by ship to West Africa.

The ring allegedly operated in Rockland County, N.Y., and multiple counties in New Jersey, including Morris, Bergen, Essex, Union, Hudson, Monmouth, Middlesex, Hunterdon and Somerset counties.

All 21 of the defendants who were charged are charged with first-degree racketeering, first-degree money laundering, and second- or third-degree receiving stolen property and fencing.

The A.G.'s office released the suspect's identities along with their alleged roles:
