Edinburg man sentenced to over four years in prison for carjacking
McAllen, TEXAS (KVEO NEWSCENTER 23) — An Edinburg man has been sentenced to prison for his involvement in a carjacking back in August 2012.
Erasmo Garza, 29, was sentenced to over four years in prison and ordered to pay restitution of nearly $3,000 after pleading guilty, on March 5, 2013, for carjacking.
Garza admitted to being involved in a high speed chase with local police officers, crashing his vehicle, running across Highway 83 and into the parking lot of the Macaroni Grill where he forced a woman out of her Mercedes Benz and fled from police.
Police were able to arrest Garza several days and stayed in federal custody, without bond, since January 2013.
