Manhunt underway in Johnson City carjacking

Johnson City Press • Feb 1, 2018 at 2:31 PM

Deputies are searching for a man wanted for an armed carjacking in Johnson City, Washington County Sheriff Ed Graybeal said Thursday in a news release.

Cory M. Cox, 30, last known address 2223 Signal Drive, is wanted for numerous charges including: carjacking, felony reckless endangerment, reckless driving, felony evading arrest, and possession of a firearm by a convicted felon. He is considered armed and dangerous.

The sheriff said law enforcement got involved in the case Jan. 25, when deputies tried to stop a Chevrolet Impala on West Walnut Street near State of Franklin Road for a minor traffic infraction. The vehicle turned right, and the driver eventually pulled over in the turn lane near the shopping center at 1735 W. State of Franklin Road.

As a deputy approached the car, a woman opened the driver’s side door and stepped partially out of the vehicle. Before she could get all the way out, Cox moved from the rear seat to the driver’s seat and accelerated away, spinning the woman into the road.
