According to a Mississipi local NBC/MSN News Now channel, a Jackson man says he is a victim of carjacking and he is furious that he has to pay to get his car back.
Tommie Collins of Jackson, Mississippi was with a friend when they became the victim of an armed carjacking. Tommie told Mississippi News Now, “Two young guys, it was five o'clock in the morning. I don't know who they were, but I just know both of them throw guns in my face and on my friend girl, took her wallet…Took my car with everything, both cell phones. Everything I had is in the car."
Collins says he immediately contacted the Jackson Police Department for help, and officers came up empty handed, but Collins didn't.
"I found my car Monday about 3:45p.m.," said Collins. "It was at the Village Apartments just sitting there parked with a flat tire. They left it there. They left bandanas, bullets all kinds of things in my car."
Collins called Jackson Police once again to file a report. Police officers on scene told Collins items in his 1997 green Honda Accord could have finger prints which ultimately could lead them to the suspects.
Collins allowed the police to have the car towed to the crime lab. Since then, JPD towed the car to the city's impound lot. Now the victim of the carjacking is faced with a 75 dollar fee before he can get back behind the wheel.
According to the Jackson Police Department, the 75 dollars is a standard fee all people have to pay to receive their car. The department says this money goes towards the towing bill.
