Police search for attempted carjacking, drug possession suspect in Woodland

Woodland suspect

The suspect in an alleged attempted carjacking Friday in Woodland is caught on surveillance video. 

WOODLAND — Police are searching for a white man who allegedly tried to carjack a woman’s vehicle on Old Pacific Highway on Friday after reportedly being passed out behind the wheel at a gas station.

Around 10 a.m. Friday, Woodland officers responded to a welfare check at the Belmont Loop Chevron after they received a report of a man “slumped over the wheel” in a blue 2011 BMW parked next to a gas pump, said Sgt. James Keller.

Keller said the suspect fled on foot to Old Pacific Highway when approached by officers. He said the gas station surveillance caught the suspect trying to open the door of a woman’s locked car along the road. The suspect held onto the handle as the driver sped away, fell, then continued to run down Old Pacific Highway.

Police said they could not detain him at the gas station without probable cause of a crime.

The suspect is still at large as of Monday, Keller said.

Police report the man is facing charges of second-degree robbery for the alleged carjacking, as well as making false statements to law enforcement for giving a suspected fake name. He also is facing possession of drugs with the intent to distribute and unlawful possession of a firearm.

People with information on the suspect can call the Woodland Police Department at 360-225-6965 and give the case No. W21-727.
