FLINT, MI – One criminal in Flint picked the wrong area to try to car jack two separate vehicles within minutes of each other.
On Friday, February 20th, 2015, at 7:34 a.m., Flint Police Officers responded to a gas station in the 500 block of S. Dort Hwy in reference to a UDAA (Unlawfully Driving Away of an Automobile) in progress.
The officers spoke with the victim who stated that someone had just jumped in his vehicle while he was pumping gas and attempted to take his car. The victim was able to remove this subject from his vehicle and prevent his car from being stolen.
After speaking with that victim, the officers checked the area for the suspect. Just three buildings away, the officers observed two subjects fighting inside of a truck. Officers approached the two subjects and stopped the fight.
They discovered that one of the subjects was the owner of the truck and the other was attempting to steal the truck. The suspect was taken into custody for attempting to take both vehicles and is in jail awaiting arraignment.
