Arrests Made in Series of Carjackings

DETROIT (WWJ) – The carjacking ring known by police as S550, snatched high-end vehicles, primarily from downtown Detroit, including (according to police) Rev. Jesse Jackson’s vehicle and an expensive vehicle during the Detroit Auto Show.

Detroit Police Chief Ralph Godbee says the group started out carjacking vehicles for parts, then graduated from there:

“Their criminal enterprise figured out that it was much more lucrative for them to have the whole vehicle with keys, which became much more profitable, but what it also did, was raise the ante relative to how aggressive they were,” says Godbee.

Seven men and one woman have been arrested and are facing state and federal charges.

“Seven men and one woman were arrested for this alleged conspiracy that resulted in numerous thefts and carjackings of high end vehicles specifically with a target in the downtown Detroit area,” Godbee says.

The investigation continues and more arrests may follow.

    If they don’t start shooting these %^*%$#, no one will want to come into Detroit. How many will hire Fieger? He will try to get them off with the excuse that they needed transportation to get to work in the suburbs.
