Armed Citizen Captures Carjacker In New Orleans

posted on August 21, 2015
Larry Pierre’s bad decision #1: Carjacking a tow truck. Bad decision #2: Picking an armed citizen’s yard in which to seek refuge.

It was just two days after Pierre’s 17th birthday when he flagged down a tow truck, threatened the driver with a gun and took off in the vehicle. Later, as officers spotted the stolen truck and gave chase, Pierre and an accomplice ditched the vehicle and fled.

Pierre ended up in a backyard where the homeowner, hearing a suspicious sound, came out to investigate, shotgun in hand. When Pierre saw him, he put his hands in the air and was led out of the backyard and into the hands of police. The accomplice remains at large.

Pierre was charged with carjacking, illegal possession of a stolen vehicle, reckless operation of a vehicle and criminal trespassing. Thanks to an armed citizen, he just might be celebrating his 18th birthday behind bars.
