Santa Monica police are on the lookout for an ex-Marine they consider to be armed and dangerous after he allegedly carjacked a Mercedes he was test driving.

Police allege that David Guyer test drove a car at the W.I. Simonson Mercedes dealership on Wilshire Boulevard on Nov. 3. In the middle of the ride, he told the salesman he had a gun and ordered the employee out of the car, officials said.

The vehicle was recovered six days later in Hermosa Beach, according to a Santa Monica Police Department press release. 

On March 19, a felony arrest warrant was issued for Guyer for carjacking. He is described as a 45-year-old male white adult, 6 fee, two inches tall, 190 lbs, 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. He has previously lived in Tracy and Venice and may be in the West Los Angeles or South Bay area.

“HE SHOULD BE CONSIDERED ARMED AND DANGEROUS,” the release states in all capital letters.  

Anyone with information is asked to contact Detective Chad Goodwin at (310) 458-8942; Sgt Tom McLaughlin at (310) 458-8430; or the Santa Monica Police Department (24 hours) at (310) 458-8495.

I didn't recommend myself...if you're speaking to me...who is Patty? I am merely questioning the reporting of this item more than 2 months after arrest warrant, and 7 months after the incident. Geez, what a moron....He's on the loose, not on the "lose."
