KC man charged in carjacking

A Kansas City man remained in federal custody Friday after prosecutors charged him late the day before with carjacking.

Michael R. Toombs, 23, allegedly stole a 2000 Dodge Caravan at gunpoint on June 23, according to federal court records. Earlier this week, a Kansas City officer spotted the van near 8th Street and Indiana Avenue. The victim later picked Toombs out of a police lineup, prosecutors alleged.
