Car Wash Carjacker Stopped In Tracks

posted on April 7, 2015

A routine Saturday afternoon car wash in Smyrna, Ga., turned into anything but that when a teen attempted to take off with someone else’s car. The suspect jumped into a minivan that Tasha Oar was vacuuming and tried to drive off. Oar pounced onto the hood in an effort to stop him, but he only sped up.

Fortunately, an armed citizen was alerted by the commotion, quickly came over and put an end to the carjacking attempt—by shooting the suspect in the shoulder and holding him at gunpoint until the police arrived. The wannabe car thief has been charged with aggravated assault and theft by taking a motor vehicle, and police are still searching for three other suspects who were in a van that took off when the shot was fired.
