Teen arrested in connection with Vineville carjacking

Bibb County deputies have recovered the 1995 Saturn taken in a Saturday afternoon carjacking, Macon police Sgt. Melanie Hofmann said Wednesday morning.

Hofmann said the deputies found the car and a 16-year-old boy at 245 Tom Hill Sr. Blvd. at 1:30 a.m. Sunday. Deputies also recovered a sawed-off shotgun that possibly was used in the carjacking, she said.

The boy has been charged with theft by receiving, Hofmann said.

A 25-year-old woman reported a young man threatened her with a short shotgun and demanded her keys at the Marathon, 3224 Vineville Ave., just after 5 p.m. Saturday, according to a police report.
