    Mom turns in son for carjackings
    BY BRADY CALHOUN
    Jun. 21 -- PANAMA CITY -- A note to any would-be carjackers: Don't let your mom find out.
    A 26-year-old suspect in three carjackings was on the lam until Panama City police arrived at his mother's house Friday, Lt. Mark Aviles said. The woman, whose name was not released, told investigators her son, Antonique Cummings, of Panama City, was not home. However, she left the house and called investigators a short time later, telling them she was bringing in her son and wanted to know where they could meet, officers said.

    She ''went and picked him up for us,'' Aviles said, ``and brought him to us.''

    Investigators arrested Cummings and charged him with one count of carjacking in connection to an incident Wednesday night at the Bottle Stopper Lounge on Martin Luther King Jr. Boulevard, police reported. The other man charged in that carjacking, 38-year-old Dallas Rosier, of Lynn Haven, was arrested shortly after he and another man carjacked a vehicle at a Panama City Arby's on Thursday night, police said. Police believe Cummings was the other man at the Arby's carjacking, but he has not yet been charged, Aviles said.

    Rosier, who faces two counts of carjacking, is being held on a $50,000 bond; Cummings has not yet had a bond hearing. Confidential informants and other investigative work led officers to Cummings, investigators said. Several victims also identified both men, officials said.

    Investigators believe the men are responsible for three carjackings since Wednesday, and additional charges are expected, Aviles said.

    Police said a pregnant woman, Savanna Dykes, 21, of Southport, was the pair's first victim Wednesday night when one of the suspects allegedly put a gun in her face at the Bottle Stopper Lounge and told her to get out of the car. The other suspect, growing impatient, said, ''Just shoot her,'' according to an incident report from the Panama City Police Department.
    Dykes got out of the vehicle and hid behind a nearby truck until the men left. The suspects reportedly abandoned her Chrysler Sebring shortly after being spotted by a police officer.

    They struck again in the parking lot of the Holiday Inn Select on Martin Luther King Jr. Boulevard at 11:20 p.m., police reported. The suspects pulled a gun on John Lynch, 72, of Panama City, as he approached his minivan and demanded his wallet and keys, according to a police incident report. When he did not move fast enough, the men threatened to kill him, the report states.

    Police said they believe the pair struck for a final time at the Arby's drive-thru on Martin Luther King Jr. Boulevard, forcing Genensis Anderson, 20, out of a Suzuki Forinza.

    All vehicles have been returned to the victims, officers said in a news release. Attempts to contact the victims were unsuccessful Friday night.

    Shortly after the Arby's incident, police caught Rosier fleeing from the Forinza. The driver, who police believe was Cummings, escaped until his mother found him Friday afternoon, authorities reported.

    ''She sounds real religious, very God-fearing,'' Aviles said of Cummings' mother. He added that she told investigators if her son had done something wrong, he needed to answer for it.

    Aviles said Cummings has a long local history of crimes, including multiple drug charges, assaulting a law enforcement officer and trespassing.

    Rosier served 10 years in prison for burglary of an occupied dwelling. He was released May 1, according to Florida's Department of Corrections. He also has been convicted of battery on a law enforcement officer, grand theft and cocaine possession. Carjacking represented a new career choice for Rosier, Aviles said.

    ''I think he understands that wasn't a good career choice, either,'' he said.

    These types of carjackings are unusual for Bay County, Aviles said. ''They had our attention from the first carjacking,'' he added.

    The typical carjacking in Panama City, although not frequent, usually involve drug deals gone bad, ''thugs with guns'' messing with other ''thugs with guns'' or a juvenile trying to join a gang or impress someone.

    ''We don't want those happening, either,'' Aviles said.

    Just remember that shot placement is much more important with what you carry than how big a bang you get with each trigger pull.

    Cool

    It appears they'd been riding on some bicycles prior to the first carjacking at the 'lounge'/ (liquor store?) which is in a sorta seedy part of town. The Arby's and the Holiday Inn are about 300yds from each other and a couple miles from the liquor store.
    Crimes with a gun are supposed to be mandatory sentences in Florida now but it seems it doesn't always play out that way. Let's hope this goes before a judge that 'goes by the law'.
    Good on the mom.

    The story on the crimes dated 19 June.

    Holiday get-togethers are going to be a bit strained, in future years ... at least, when Junior gets out of the slammer. She'd best watch her "six."

    Kudos for the reporting, though. That takes some cojones, 'cause Junior's gonna be none too happy about it.

    No problem. LE wouldn't release her name.

    According to the story, it looks like mom brought the miscreant in herself, personally.

    And get out he will . . .

    Rosier served 10 years in prison for burglary of an occupied dwelling. He was released May 1, according to Florida's Department of Corrections. He also has been convicted of battery on a law enforcement officer, grand theft and cocaine possession.

    Didn't take him long to lose all that wonderful rehabilitation he must have gotten in the clink, eh?
