The charges stem from an Aug. 29 incident in which Pope stole items from the Eldersburg Walmart. He was confronted by an employee and an associate fled, leaving him stranded. He approached a teenage victim and witness and forcibly carjacked them, but the two were able to prevent him from leaving the area in the vehicle. He fled on foot.
Carroll County Sheriff’s Office deputies apprehended him shortly after, according to the statement of charges.
