On 01-26-13 approximately 7:20PM, officers responded to the 400 block of Bristol Ave, regarding a carjacking that had just occurred. Officers contacted the victim who advised that a suspect armed with a compact machine gun approached him while he was sitting in his vehicle. The suspect had the victim exit his vehicle at gunpoint. The suspect conducted a search of the victim and took his cell phone and cash from his person. The suspect then fled with the victim’s vehicle towards E14th St. The victim advised that the suspect was with another subject (no description) who was in a dark colored Honda Accord. The San Leandro Police Department notified surrounding agencies with information about the carjacking. Approximately 45 minutes later, the Oakland Police Department advised the San Leandro Police Department that they had located both vehicles in the 900 block of 70th Ave, and that they had a subject detained who was identified as Alex Myers. A search was conducted for another outstanding suspect but met with negative results. The Honda Accord was reported stolen out of Morgan Hill.

The victim from the carjacking positively identified Myers. Myers was arrested for carjacking, possession of stolen property, possession of a stolen vehicle and a parole violation outstanding warrant. No weapon was recovered
