NORTH FORSYTH — Forsyth County Sheriff’s deputies pulled over a vehicle Sunday afternoon they thought was connected to a carjacking in the nearby city of Alpharetta, officials said.
Upon receiving the driver’s information, however, deputies deemed he wasn’t connected to the crime, said Robin Regan, a spokesman for the agency.
The stop on Ga. 400 at Exit 15 ended “without incident,” but not before attracting a lot of attention and speculation in the north Forsyth area.
The carjacking had been reported a short time earlier on Ga. 400 south of the Forsyth-Fulton county line.
When a vehicle was bumped on Ga. 400, the drivers of the two cars got out to assess the damage. The driver and passenger of the at-fault vehicle then apparently robbed the other driver at gunpoint and drove off with both cars.
Regan said since the carjacking happened outside of the county, the local sheriff’s office had no further details.
It was not immediately known whether the suspects were thought to still be in the area.
The Alpharetta Department of Public Safety could not be immediately reached for comment.
