Carjacking Suspect In Custody After Three-County Chase

Posted November 3, 2005 9:48 a.m. EST

— Investigators from three counties were able to stop a carjacking suspect who tried to elude them Wednesday night.

Investigators say the suspect stole a car from a victim in Cary at about 8 p.m. Wednesday.

The incident started when a woman pulled into the driveway of her Cary home and a man approached her, demanding money and her keys. He took the keys to her Saturn Relay and her ATM card, and drove off in her car.

Police said the suspect told the victim he had a gun, but did not show one and the woman was not hurt.

The vehicle had the On-Star tracking system, which is how authorities located the vehicle in Lee County, where Sanford police tried to stop the vehicle and the chase began.

Law enforcement officials say the suspect then led them on a chase through Chatham and Lee counties on U.S. Highway 1 before he turned around.

The chase ended in Wake County where a deputy used stop sticks on U.S. Highway 1.

James Michael Lloyd, 45, of Chapel Hill is in custody of Sanford police. Cary police said they will issue warrants for common law robbery and felonious breaking and entering of a motor vehicle.
