  • Follow Crime & courts

The arrest of an Aiken man suspected of carjacking led police to uncover a stash of guns and illegal drugs.

Shortly after 9 p.m. Thursday, Aiken Public Safety officers responded to Richland Avenue in downtown Aiken in reference to a carjacking. A female victim said Timothy Clement, 27, forced his way into her parked vehicle, according to a news release.

Clement demanded the victim move to the passenger seat, and he drove to a bank where he used her ATM card to withdraw cash. He then forced her to exit the car, which he used to flee the scene.

The suspect was arrested Friday morning after an officer saw the vehicle being driven on Whiskey Road. Clement attempted to flee before stopping the vehicle and cooperating with police, the report said.

Following the arrest, a search warrant was obtained for a residence on the 400 block of Union Street NE where authorities located multiple firearms, stolen electronics and illegal drugs. The residents, Joseph Carlos Brown, 22, and Johnny Marlos Brown, 22, both of Aiken, were arrested.

Clement’s charges include armed robbery, kidnapping, financial transaction card theft and fraud, failure to stop for blue lights and possession of drug paraphernalia. He was also charged with two counts of second degree burglary for incidents at a residence on Greenwich Drive on Thursday and Friday morning.

Joseph Brown was charged with possession with intent to distribute marijuana and crack cocaine. Other charges were possession of a firearm with an obliterated serial number and three counts of possession of stolen goods.

Johnny Brown was charged with violation of probation.

The Liberal Response

We'll take his driver License away. That way he can't drive and do this again.

So naturally once a person is not longer legally permitted to drive, that person will no longer be able to Car Jack people correct?

Stupid Idea isn't it?

But it has been the Progressive aka Liberal Response towards Gun Control.
