A Palauan man in Anchorage, Alaska is facing 11 years of jail term after he pleaded guilty to carjacking at a federal court, according to a report by Alaska-based media.
The Palauan man identified as Cordy Martin, 26, was sentenced to 11 years of imprisonment and a five-year supervised release for stealing an Anchorage woman’s car at gunpoint.
The Anchorage woman identified as Nichole Stachelrodt, 23, recalled that she was walking on her way to work at around 5:45 a.m. in May at the Alaska Native Medical Center when Martin pointed a gun at her and told her to give him the car keys.
After getting hold of the car, Martin reportedly sped off across the town, drove on the wrong side of the road and hit another car.
Martin reportedly tried to evade authorities by hiding before he was eventually found and arrested by the authorities.
Palau’s Ministry of Justice told Island Times that they have not received any diplomatic note yet informing them of Martin’s case. (Rhealyn C. Pojas)
