The FBI is offering a reward of up to $5,000 for information leading to the arrest of a Santa Monica carjacking suspect considered armed and dangerous – with time spent in the U.S. Marine Corps.
Santa Monica Police Department Sgt. Jay Moroso said on Nov. 3, 2013, suspect David Guyer entered the W.I. Simonson Mercedes dealership in Santa Monica and requested to test drive a car.
“Guyer provided the salesperson an Arizona driver’s license, which was then photocopied and retained for the dealership’s records,” Moroso said. “During the test drive, Guyer stopped the vehicle, told the salesperson he had a gun, and ordered the salesperson out of the vehicle. He then fled the scene. The vehicle was recovered six days later in Hermosa Beach.”
Moroso said on March 19, 2014, a felony arrest warrant was issued for David Guyer for carjacking.
He is described as a 45-year-old male white adult, 6’2″ tall, 190lbs, brown hair and green eyes with a closely trimmed goatee.
“Guyer served in the U.S. Marine Corps and is purported to be proficient in martial arts,” Moroso said. “He has previously lived in Tracy, CA and Venice, CA and may be in the West Los Angeles or South Bay area. He should be considered armed and dangerous.”
