On-Star helps track down carjacker

Posted: Updated:
FLINT, MI (WNEM) -

On-Star is being credited with helping police track down a suspect who carjacked an elderly man.

Investigators say the suspect approached a man near Ballenger and Beecher roads yesterday in Flint. The suspect apparently showed the victim a weapon, and then took off in his vehicle.

On-Star was activated, and the vehicle was quickly tracked down.

The suspect had taken off on foot, but was arrested by Flint police officers a short time later.

The elderly man wasn't hurt, and his vehicle was returned to him.
