Hunt for Carjacking Suspects Causes Commotion in Holly Spring

Posted November 21, 1996 12:00 a.m. EST

— Holly Springs residents must have felt for a moment that they were in Los Angeles.

Five men held up a person in an Apex park Wednesday night. The suspects' car was found in Holly Springs in southern Wake County.

Five police agencies and a state helicopter helped track the suspects. Several residents telephoned WRAL asking for an explanation for the large contingent of police officers in their normally quiet community.

Three people are now in custody.
