Suspected H-E-B carjacker arrested on unrelated charges

Cedar Park H-E-B

CEDAR PARK, Texas (KXAN) — A man arrested on unrelated charges may also be a suspect in the Saturday carjacking of a family at a Cedar Park H-E-B.

“Right now, this man has not been charged with anything in relation to this case and until charges are filed from our agency, we will not be identifying him,” Cedar Park Police wrote in a release. Another agency had issued a warrant for his arrest.

A family reported a man walked up to their car and told a mother and her children to get out. They had been waiting in the running Mazda CX5 while the father ran inside the store at 2800 E. Whitestone Blvd. for lemonade.

Cedar Park police say the man was found thanks to community reports. The Mazda was found abandoned in a neighboring city.
