Salt Lake City police say carjacking suspect nabbed after leaving ID in victim's car

SALT LAKE CITY (AP) — Salt Lake City police say a carjacking suspect was nabbed after he left his wallet and identification in his victim's car. Police allege the suspect displayed a gun and carjacked a man at a gas station around 10:30 p.m. Wednesday. The driver pulled over when he spotted a police officer, and the suspect fled.

But he left his wallet in the man's vehicle.

Hours later, a Midvale police officer stopped a pickup truck with the suspect in the back seat, allegedly not wearing a seat belt.

Police said the suspect was also wanted on a warrant charging him with aggravated burglary. He was being held now at the Salt Lake County jail.
