Police Collar Suspected Camden County Carjacker
The Camden County Prosecutor's Office reports that George Meyers, 43, of Clementon, was captured after allegedly failing to carjack two more victims Wednesday morning.
A Clementon man is in custody in connection with a rash of carjackings in Camden County.
George Meyers, 43, was arrested in Lindenwold Wednesday morning shortly after he attempted two more carjackings, according to the Camden County Prosecutor's Office.
Meyers is charged with two counts of kidnapping and four counts of carjacking. Authorities are likely to file additional charges against the Clementon man.
The first carjacking occurred on Wednesday, Nov. 14, at about 8:40 a.m., in Pine Hill. The second incident occurred on Nov. 24, in Clementon.
The victims in both of those crimes were elderly men, according to the Prosecutor's Office. He allegedly was armed with a box cutter the first carjacking and a large knife the second.
In both incidents, Meyers allegedly forced his victims to drive him to Camden and robbed them.
Meyers is accused of attempting to carjack two more passenger vehicles Wednesday morning about 9:30 a.m., though neither attempt was successful.
He is accused of approaching a female driver at a Wawa on 10th Avenue in Lindenwold and entering her car. The woman got out of the car and screamed, prompting Meyers to run from the scene.
The 43-year-old Clementon man then attempted to get in another vehicle at Laurel Road and Blackwood Clementon Road, also in Lindenwold, but the female driver of that vehicle struggled with him and he fled, the Prosecutor's Office said.
Meyers was armed with a knife in both incidents Wednesday morning. He was arrested by Lindenwold Police shortly after the second carjacking attempt.
Meyers was lodged in Camden County Jail Wednesday.
