A carjacking and high speed chase led to the arrest of one of Albemarle County's most wanted.

In this week's Crime Stoppers Most Wanted we feature Alexander Maurice Turner. Local police charged Turner with credit card theft and motor vehicle theft, but couldn't find him.

Yesterday he turned up in Altoona, Pennsylvania where he allegedly car jacked a minivan at knifepoint, and led police on a high speed chase that ended with Turner on the roof of a home.

Albemarle County sheriffs say they'll bring Turner back to Central Virginia to face charges here.
