GREENBELT, Md. (WUSA) - A District man has been sentenced to 140 months in prison for his role in a Greenbelt carjacking, according to U.S. Attorney for the District of Maryland Rod J. Rosenstein.
Reginald Jacoby Calloway, 25, was sentenced to 140 months in prison followed by five years of supervised release for carjacking and brandishing a firearm in furtherance of a crime of violence.
According to Calloway's guilty plea, on January 25, 2011, he and co-defendant Terrence Kelvin Shepherd were driving on the Baltimore-Washington Parkway in Greenbelt, when they spotted a car stopped on the shoulder of the road. The driver of the vehicle had pulled over after he dropped his cell phone on the passenger side of the car.
Shepherd stopped his pick-up truck and Calloway got out and approached the car. Calloway opened the passenger side door of the car and pointed a .22 caliber handgun at the driver. Calloway ordered the victim out of the car, took his wallet and told the victim to walk away. Calloway sped away in the victim's car. The victim saw a white pick-up truck with a ladder on top pull off the shoulder and follow Calloway in the stolen car. The car was later found abandoned on the shoulder of the Baltimore-Washington Parkway, about a mile from where it was taken.
Approximately 15 minutes after the carjacking, Calloway and Shepherd were seen on the surveillance camera at a gas station on Kenilworth Road in Washington, D.C. They had arrived together in Shepherd's pick-up truck. Calloway was seen behind a vehicle at an adjoining pump.
Police arrived at the gas station and Calloway and Shepherd left. They were pulled over by police, and when officers returned to the gas station and recovered a fully loaded .22 caliber handgun on the ground where Calloway had been standing, as well as the victim's debit card in a nearby trash can. Calloway's fingerprints were also recovered from the driver's door of the stolen vehicle.
Terrence Shepherd, age 28, of Washington, D.C., previously pleaded guilty and was sentenced to 65 months in prison.
