Accused Carjacker/Kidnapper in Custody
A man who police believe kidnapped a woman and stole her car, after trying to steal three other vehicles, is now in custody.
According to authorities, 18-year-old Raliek Chambers is in jail, but not after traveling more than a hundred miles before he was caught. Police say he jumped into a woman’s car at a gas station in East Stroudsburg. He told her he was driving to Virginia.
They stopped in Frackville in Schuylkill County to gas up. The woman was somehow able to get away and call 911.
Police then chased the alleged carjacker in the woman’s car through several counties. He crashed the vehicle near Carlisle in Cumberland County. He is in custody. The victim is okay.
Authorities have not released the names of the suspect or victim.
Police believe that crook is the same man responsible for three more attempted carjackings this afternoon in East Stroudsburg.
A surveillance camera snapped a picture of the man at a gas station along Lincoln Avenue.
