The Kershaw County Sheriff’s Office is investigating a carjacking incident that reportedly occurred Thursday evening. A KCSO report said a juvenile told deputies her mother stopped to use an automated teller machine (ATM) along U.S. 1 in Lugoff and while she was out of the car a light-skiined African American male got into the car and forced the girl out of the car before driving away eastbound on U.S. 1 toward Camden. The driver of the car using the ATM said she heard her daughter yelling, saw the car drive away and called 911 on her cell phone. She said her purse, check book, address book, and remote garage door opener were left in the car along with a new Xbox gaming system in the trunk.

The KCSO report said the car is a red 2014 Kia Forte four-door sedan worth $12,000. Descriptions of the car and suspect were entered into National Crime Information Center, a crime database available to law enforcement agencies all over the country. Deputies searched the immediate area for the car with no results, the report said.
