Deputies tracked down a Rosemead armed carjacking suspect with the help of a LoJack system late Thursday, officials said.
Jose Ramos, 31, was booked on suspicion of carjacking following his arrest by deputies from the sheriff’s East Los Angeles Station, Los Angeles County sheriff’s officials said. His hometown was not immediately available.
He’s accused of approaching a man and taking his car at gunpoint in the parking lot of the Garden Inn, in the 5300 block of Rosemead Boulevard in Rosemead, shortly before 11 p.m. Thursday, Moreno said.
East Los Angeles deputies received a signal from a LoJack tracking system and found the car, as well as Ramos and a gun, in their jurisdiction, Moreno said.
According to county booking records, Ramos was being held in lieu of $100,000 bail pending his scheduled arraignment Tuesday in Alhambra Superior Court.
