Baltimore County police arrested five teens after a carjacking a 66-year-old man in Nottingham last week.
Police said the man was approached by two teens after he pulled into his driveway in the unit block of Lyndale Avenue on Feb. 20. One displayed a handgun and demanded his keys and cell phone before leaving in his car. Officers later found the car, near McCormick and Councilman avenues in Overlea.
Investigators then received information that led them to the nearby Elmont Avenue, where they saw a Ford Focus with three people drive past them and stop at a house. Detectives watched as two individuals matching the description of the carjacking suspects exited the house and got into the Ford.
Detectives checked the car’s registration using the National Crime Information Center and found it was reported stolen from the 5600 block of Leiden Road on Feb. 1. The owner told police they left the vehicle running, unattended to warm up.
Officers stopped the car and arrested all five people in the car.
Police charged the driver, Jemar Myria Cannon, 18, of the unit block of Elmont Avenue, with possessing an unregistered handgun and a number of small bags of suspected cocaine. He is being held at the Baltimore County Detention Center.
