Group of men wanted for carjacking spree in Detroit

Police seek public's help identifying carjackers

DETROIT – Project Greenlight surveillance cameras captured crystal-clear video of three men who Detroit police say are responsible for a string of carjackings.

The first car stolen was a burgundy Lincoln MKZ. The carjacking happened Saturday outside a party store in the 16000 block of East Warren.

"The driver went into the party store, got back out into his car and they opened the handle, got in and robbed him of his money," Detroit police Sgt. Robert Wellman said.

The trio is armed. They used the MKZ to get around and carjack two other people, taking off in a white Cadillac Escalade and a black Cadillac sedan.

The men dumped the Cadillacs two hours later when they saw a DPD squad car.

Police have the two Cadillacs. They said the men's objective isn't to strip the vehicles, but to rob the owners of cash, jewelry and cellphones.

Anyone who can identify the men is asked to call call HEAT at 1-800-242-HEAT.
