YORK COUNTY, Va. (WAVY) — York-Poquoson Sheriff’s deputies arrested a man in connection to a January carjacking.

18-year-old Wright Barnard Raynor, of Bowling Green, was charged with carjacking, use of a firearm during the commission of a felony, grand larceny, conspiracy to commit grand larceny and petite larceny on Feb. 28. Raynor’s warrants were served at the Pamunkey Regional Jail, where he is being held on unrelated charges.

Authorities say the carjacking happened on Jan. 21 in the 900 block of Denbigh Boulevard. The victim told deputies two men robbed him of his keys and left with his vehicle, which was later found at a Wawa in Newport News.
