Allen Park Man Charged in Carjacking Case

Prosecutor Kym Worthy has charged Earl Joeseph Larche, 37 (DOB: 08/28/1980), of Allen Park, with Carjacking.

On October 12, 2017, at 6:09 p.m., at a BP gas station in the 16050 block of Southfield Road near Roosevelt Avenue in Allen Park, it is alleged that Larche approached the car of a 24-year-old female who was outside of her car pumping gas when Larche jumped in the car and drove it away. The woman jumped in the passenger side of the vehicle and, with the aid of a male truck driver at the scene, was able to stop the car from leaving the station. The defendant was briefly captured by the truck driver but the defendant broke free and ran from the scene. Investigation by the Allen Park police lead to Larche's arrest.
