Dunwoody Police continue the search for a carjacking suspect who stole a black BMW over the weekend.
A person reported to police that shortly before 10 p.m. on Friday, May 4, they were followed into the condominium complex at 2300 Peachford Road, where the Sterling of Dunwoody condos are located. The person said they were followed into the complex by a black Infiniti.
