Juvenile Carjacking Suspect Taken into Custody After Parents Turn Them In

In a harrowing incident in Mississippi, a juvenile carjacking suspect was taken into custody after their parents turned them in to authorities. The event occurred when a woman, Heather Allen, was held at gunpoint along with her children and grandchildren in their driveway. The ordeal, which unfolded in front of a doorbell camera, has drawn significant media attention.

The Frightening Incident

Heather Allen recounted the terrifying experience to Inside Edition’s Allison Hall. She described how one of the suspects, who was shirtless, shouted, “Get out of the car! Give me the keys! Give me the keys!” He then forcibly opened her daughter’s door, yanking and pulling her out. The entire confrontation was captured by the family’s doorbell camera, providing crucial evidence of the crime.

Media Attention and Suspect Identification

The video footage of the carjacking quickly spread across media platforms, eventually reaching the family of one of the suspects. Recognizing their child’s involvement, the parents made the difficult decision to turn their teenager in to the authorities.

Law Enforcement Response

The Copiah County Sheriff’s Office confirmed that the juvenile suspect was brought to the station by their parents. The suspect has been charged with armed carjacking and six counts of aggravated assault. Fortunately, Allen and her family were not injured during the incident. Her car was recovered approximately 40 minutes after the carjacking was reported.

Ongoing Investigation

While the juvenile suspect is now in custody, police are still actively searching for the other individual involved in the carjacking. The investigation continues as authorities work to bring all those responsible to justice.
