Montgomery County Police (MCPD) arrested and charged three juveniles and an adult for an armed carjacking in Bethesda.
On Friday, June 10, at approximately 11 p.m., police responded to the St. Elmo Parking Garage for the report of an armed carjacking.
“The investigation by detectives determined that the victims were walking to their red 2022 Hyundai Elantra, when they noticed the four suspects in the area. One of the suspects approached the victim and demanded the keys. The same suspect then produced a black handgun, pointed it at the victim’s chest and again demanded the keys. The victim handed the suspect the keys and all four suspects fled the scene in the Hyundai on Cordell Ave. toward Wisconsin Ave,” according to MCPD.
The owner of the Hyundai had a tracking device on the vehicle and provided investigators with a location of the vehicle.
On June 11, officers located the vehicle and arrested three of the four suspects. Police identified the suspects as 18-year-old Herbert Randall, a 15-year-old female, and 16-year-old Katelyn McKiernan. The suspects admitted to committing the carjacking, police said.
After obtaining a search warrant, detectives arrested the fourth suspect, 17-year-old Caleb Fraker.
Fraker, Randall, and McKiernan are being charged as adults. The 15-year-old is being charged as a juvenile and was released to the custody of her parent.
All suspects face armed carjacking and handgun related charges.
