Anyone who commits crimes on church grounds does not deserve a place to breathe in the free world. That’s just my personal opinion.
Lock these kind of people up away from the general population and toss the keys.
Channel 2 News (Atlanta):
The Alpharetta Police Department confirmed with Channel 2 Action News that a carjacking happened at a church Friday evening.
Police said Jason Taratoot, 31, held the victim at gunpoint and stole a green Kia Soul at St. James Methodist Church.
An officer spotted the vehicle driving southbound on Georgia 400, and when Taratoot refused to stop, a short vehicle pursuit started.
The suspect attempted to run away, but was stopped by a police canine.
“Our investigation revealed the captured suspect was a wanted fugitive out of Cherokee County,” the department posted on its Facebook page.
The suspect faces numerous felony charges, including aggravated assault, theft of a motor vehicle and possession of a stolen firearm.
No one was hurt and the suspect is now in jail, according to officials.
