MILTON, Ga. -- Officers with the Milton Police Department arrested a Norcross man after he tried to carjack two motorists and had seven pounds of marijuana and $85,000 in his car -- all while his six-year-old son was with him.
On Tuesday, Mar. 15 at 10:21 p.m., Monroe Le-beau III, 28, was stopped for speeding on Deerfield Parkway at Fawnvista Lane.
Officers allegedly noted that Le-beau's 2007 Dodge Charger smelled of marijuana. When asked to step out of the car, Le-beau refused, citing his son as the reason.
Eventually, Le-beau left the car, but while being questioned, he began running toward the Morris Lake subdivision, leaving his child behind.
Police eventually found the suspect hiding in the back of a gold Toyota Avalon, which he had allegedly carjacked from a 40-year-old Alpharetta man.
Le-beau began to run again, this time toward Fasherstone Drive.
