Suspected carjacker found naked with stolen truck
BATON ROUGE - Deputies arrested a man who allegedly stole a truck at gunpoint after two other failed carjacking attempts Monday morning.
The robbery was reported around 8:20 a.m. in the 4500 block of South Park Drive. The area is surrounded by houses and apartment buildings.
The East Baton Rouge Sheriff's Office says the robber, identified Tuesday as 38-year-old Larry Mack, tried to steal two other vehicles in the neighborhood before eventually taking a gray 2001 Toyota Tundra crew cab.
Baton Rouge police found Mack and the stolen truck on Amarillo Street. Police said Mack was reportedly found naked, spraying himself down with a water hose.
He was booked on two counts of armed robbery and theft of a motor vehicle.
