INDUSTRY – A double carjacking suspect was identified and arrested at his workplace after deputies canvassed the area where the crimes took place.
The as-of-yet unidentified suspect was arrested without incident after his workplace manager identified him to deputies. The suspect, who simulated a handgun during the alleged crimes, was found with narcotics and brass knuckles, said Sgt. David Jacobson of the Los Angeles County Sheriff’s Industry Station.
The suspect was taken into custody around 12:45 p.m. Friday, located at his workplace off Grand Crossing and Baker Parkway.
The first carjacking took place in the In-N-Out drive-thru, 21620 Valley Blvd. around 3:30 p.m. March 13. A four-door Honda Accord was taken, Jacobson said.
The suspect carjacked another victim, this time at East Lion Corporation, 318 S. Brea Canyon Rd. March 15. A Subaru Outback was taken.
Deputies learned of his identity and canvassed the general areas where the two carjackings took place in an industrial area off Brea Canyon Road north of 60 freeway, Jacobson said.
None of the drivers were injured in either crime.
The Outback was recovered, but the Accord has yet to be found, Jacobson said.
