Prosecutor Warren W. Faulk reported a Clementon man pleaded guilty Monday to a string of carjackings in 2012.
George Meyers, M/43, pleaded Monday to four counts of Carjacking for incidents that occurred in Clementon, Lindenwold and Pine Hill in November 2012.
The first incident took place about 8:40 a.m. on November 14, 2012, in Pine Hill, at West Branch Avenue and Blackwood roads. Meyers admitted to approaching an older driver stopped at a traffic light with a box cutter, getting in his vehicle and forcing him to drive to North Camden to buy heroin. Meyers took the victim’s cell phone and $400.
On November 24 another incident occurred in Clementon. Again an older driver was approached while stopped at a traffic light, this time at Gibbsboro and Blackwood roads, and Meyers, carrying a knife, forced his way into the car. He took $100 from the driver and ordered him to drive to 8th and Erie streets in Camden, where he got out of the vehicle.
Meyers tried to carjack two other passenger vehicles on November 28, 2012, a female driver at a Wawa on 10th Avenue in Lindenwold and another woman in a vehicle at Laurel Avenue and Blackwood Clementon Road, also in Lindenwold. The second driver struggled with him and he fled. Meyers was armed with a knife in both incidents. He was arrested by Lindenwold Police shortly after.
The carjackings were committed so Meyers could get to Camden to purchase drugs.
He is expected to be sentenced to a term of 17 to 20 years incarceration by Superior Court Judge Samuel Natal on April 25. He must serve 85 percent of that time before being eligible for parole. He must also pay restitution to two victims.
