DERIDDER, LA (KPLC) -

The Beauregard Parish Sheriff's Office has made another arrest in the attempted carjacking that happened in Starks on Aug. 27.

According to a news release from Chief Deputy Joe Toler, arrested was 32-year-old Cody Harris, of Sulphur.

Harris was arrested Tuesday. He has been charged with attempted carjacking.

Last week, Beauregard authorities arrested 30-year-old Angela Sanchez of Singer.

The two are being held at the Beauregard Parish Jail.

Bonds for both are set at $70,000.

Beauregard authorities said on Aug. 27, deputies were contacted by a Starks man who said that he was traveling south on Hwy. 109 when he encountered a couple in a small, white car parked on the shoulder of the road with the hood up.

Authorities said the victim stated that he pulled in behind the car, got out and met a man who was standing in front of the vehicle. The man said he was told by the couple that the vehicle was running hot.

The victim told deputies that the woman got out of the car and jumped into his truck. 

The victim said he ran back to his truck and grabbed his handgun as the woman was attempting to drive off. 

The victim said the woman then exited his truck and ran back to the car. The couple then reportedly sped off northbound on Hwy. 109.
