Man Charged in Tuscola County Carjacking

A 30-year-old man from Macomb County is being charged in connection with a carjacking and armed robbery in Tuscola County.

The sheriff’s office says their investigation led to the suspect after the vehicle information and warrant were shared with other law enforcement agencies. The incident happened Thursday, February 5. when an elderly man told police he had picked up a hitchhiker near the Hasco Road trailer park, south of Vassar. The suspect asked the man to turn down a driveway near a barn, then took out a crowbar and told the driver to get out, driving off in the victim’s car.

The suspect will be brought back to Caro to face the charges.
