3 arrested in Atlanta with Taser, latex gloves and carjacked BMW

When police officers approached a BMW parked in East Atlanta late Thursday, two of the three occupants were wearing latex gloves. A Taser sat inside the vehicle. As for the car itself, it was stolen – taken in a carjacking just an hour earlier.

Atlanta police identified the three men, all arrested about 10:35 p.m. Thursday in the parking lot of the Kroger store on Moreland Avenue, as Marquavious Green, Brentton Ellis and Damaine Bob Jr. All three were between 18 and 22 years old.

They were charged in connection with a carjacking that occurred about 9:30 at the intersection of Rankin Street and Glen Iris Drive.

The car’s owner had just parked his car outside his home and had opened the trunk when two men approached from behind. One zapped the victim with a Taser and the pair took off in his car.

An investigation quickly determined the car was in the Kroger at 1160 Moreland, Atlanta Officer Ralph Woolfolk IV said in an email. Officers surrounded the vehicle and found the two men suspected of the carjacking wearing latex gloves, Woolfolk said. Police also recovered the Taser.

Police did not identify which two of the men were suspected of the carjacking.
