COBB COUNTY, Ga. —
A pizza delivery driver watched in horror as a carjacker sped off in his new high-powered Dodge Challenger.Soon, the carjacker was leading police on a four-county chase that reached speeds up to 150 mph before he was eventually arrested. Channel 2's Ross Cavitt spoke with the carjacking victim Monday.Morris had just delivered pizza at an Austell hotel near Six Flags theme park when he was held at gunpoint. “He asked if I worked for Pizza Hut or Papa John's,” Shawn Morris told Cavitt. “Then he took my car and all the money in my pocket.”Cobb County police spotted the white 2012 Dodge Challenger minutes later and the chase began. “They said it pretty much got away from Cobb County and they had to call in backup, and it was a Caprice that took care of it,” Morris said. The chase ended in Clayton County, where police arrested 18-year-old Emmanuel Lett, of Lithonia. Records show he was on out bond for a burglary charge in DeKalb County.“There are some things I would like to do to that young man, maybe teach him a little lesson. Maybe this will teach him a lesson, although I doubt that,” Morris said.
