On September 9, 2012 at approximately 12:24 A.M, officers were dispatched to Durley Park regarding a carjacking that had just occurred.

The suspect, Eduardo Garcia, fled from the vehicle and was apprehended a short distance away. Garcia was arrested for carjacking, felony evading, and driving while under the influence.
