Carjacking is a desperate crime that is rare in Arlington Heights. While a recent carjacking suspect could have immediately entered Interstate 90 and escaped about noon Friday, December 23, 2016, vehicles and fleeing suspects are usually spotted on I-90 by Illinois State Troopers or local law enforcement officers that happen to be traveling on I-90. Law enforcment awareness followed an Illinois State Police broadcast that occurred at 12:27 p.m. after a reported vehicular hijacking at 12:05 p.m. on Goebbert Road north of Falcon Drive in Arlington Heights, and just north of the Interstate 90/Arlington Heights interchange.
While the suspect may have lucked out on I-90, he may also have had a local hideout in a garage in or near Arlington Heights. Otherwise, police in Arlington Heights and local communities would have likely spotted the carjacking victim’s car abandoned on a side street or in a parking lot. The suspect could be attempting to find a new vehicle to carjack, and could attempt to go unnoticed in a new undescribed victim’s vehicle by harming the victim.
A carjacker could also possibly seek the easier crime of auto theft by taking an unattended vehicle, especially while people may leave vehicles running unattended while loading Christmas and holiday packages.
