Man arrested in Pinellas carjacking and chase

Posted: Updated:

Pinellas County sheriff deputies say they have arrested a man who carjacked an 84-year-old man after a failed carjacking attempt of a mother who was with her children. 

Deputies say just after 3:30 p.m. on Monday afternoon, 37-year-old Anthony Sutton approached 54-year-old Michelle Hingley in the Sweetbay parking lot on Seminole Blvd in Seminole.  They say Sutton pointed a gun at her, but Hingley was able to run away with her children and her car keys.

Detectives say that Sutton then approached 82-year-old Gerald Kolar as he was sitting in his car waiting for his wife to come out of the store. They say he pulled a gun on Kolar and ordered him to get out of his car. Kolar cooperated and got of the car and Sutton left the parking lot in Kolar's 2003 Buick.

Deputies say Sutton was spotted a short time later near Clearwater-Largo Road and Mehlenbacher Road. Deputies began pursuing Sutton who got out of the car at Gladys Street and 19th Street in Largo. He ran from the car and was caught shortly thereafter.

Sutton was charged with carjacking, attempted carjacking and felony fleeing and eluding.
