Man carjacked in Anne Arundel taken to Baltimore in his own trunk

A man in Anne Arundel County was ordered at gunpoint into the trunk of his own car, driven to Baltimore, robbed and let out, Anne Arundel police said Monday.

Police learned about the incident late Saturday night. The victim, 28, told them a man approached him, pointed a gun at him and "forced him into the trunk of his own vehicle," a 1998 gold Chevrolet Cavalier, police said in a statement.

The suspect then got behind the wheel, eventually making his way to Baltimore, police said. After the victim was relieved of his wallet and cell phone, he was let out of the trunk, he told police.

The suspect drove away in the Cavalier, which was later found in Baltimore, police said.

"Preliminary investigation indicates that this was possibly a planned meeting between the victim and the suspect and the motive may have been drug-related," Anne Arundel police said in a statement.

The suspect was described as black man in his late 20s to early 30s, said police, who said he was last seen wearing a white bucket hat.

Next we'll hear about the suspect's lengthy criminal record and wonder why he was ever walking the streets in the first place.
Then his court appointed attorney(read: taxpayers footing the bill)will tell us all of his redeeming qualities and explain why he isn't responsible for his own behavior.
Like we haven't all seen this same story a few thousand times.

"The suspect was described as black" -What a shocker.

So, you're locked in a car trunk with your cell phone and you DON'T call the cops?

Drug deal gone bad, no doubt.
