Police: Carjacker Walked Out Of Court, Carjacked Second Car

LOWELL (CBS) – A day after he was arraigned on carjacking charges, a Lowell man is back behind bars after police say he escaped court in handcuffs and carjacked a second person.

WBZ Newsradio 1030’s Carl Stevens reports 

Twenty-five-year-old Adriano Ortiz-Columbo managed to leave the court house after his arraignment on Thursday on charges that include carjacking, assault and battery and failure to stop for police.

Police say he walked across the street and swiped an SUV from the Autozone parking lot.

Officers tracked him down a short time later.

He was hiding underneath a trailer when they rearrested him.

Ortiz-Columbo was arraigned on a new round of charges Friday.

He is being held without bail.

Police say because of his attempted escape and other charges, he could be looking at a lengthy prison sentence.

    But this is MA and they know instead it will be more like two slaps on the wrist and a finger shake.

    • Big Bear

      Plus, he is probably an illegal.

      • Tired

        If he’s illegal, he’ll get a court appointed lawyer, new clothes for court, medical vouchers, housing subsidy paperwork for when he is released, a prepaid gas card, fast tracked citizenship, a democratic voter registration representative to vote for him, and last but not least, a hand written letter of apology from Barack Obama with an explanation from BO why the police are stupid, and an invitation to a beer summit at the White House.

    • Kingfish

      Sounds like the Judge was more stupid than he was for letting him go, with no jail time, But like you said MA is just another tool for Mohammed Obamma.

  • Al

    I doubt he’ll face ANY prison time. Obamao needs his vote come November.

    • Another Al

      didn’t alot of his first term votes come out of the prison system?

    • Obama out NOW

      I think it’s spelled “Obambo”.

      • FreedomJackedAfterCoupAndCoverUp

        Totally made up. Unelected officials took over Washington and the media after the coup and cover up. Even most of the comments online are financed with your tax dollars. Big brother is trying to create the perception of public opinion while burying the truth. They think you can’t handle the truth. Fact of the matter is we have no democracy, president, and freedom of press is an illusion.

        Our next election is shaping up to be as big of a sham as the last. Do you know why Sarah Palin’s bus tour was really canceled? Do you know why she stayed 30 miles away from the second debate and chose the death of Steve Jobs to announce that she’s not running? Know what leaked out? Sarah Palin and Cain aren’t in the race for the same reason, the truth leaked out.

        Search PalinsDirtyLittleSecret for the biggest cover up in world history before it disappears forever much like me.

      You must mean, OBOWMAO!

    • BikerBen

      You mean in MA he can’t vote from his prison cell yet?

      • kitta

        you’re thinking of RI lol

  • Compassion for crime victims

    Execute him when he is convicted. We need to get tough on crime in this country if we want people to obey the laws. Three strikes and you are dead – that should be our policy. Two strikes and you have a mandatory 10 years i prision.

      Stealing a car = Death Penalty?

      This is not Iran.

  • Dave

    Just be careful and don’t ask for an ID or if he is a citizen. That might violate his constitutional rights to violate the life and property of the people that forced themselves in his path. They used to be known as victims, but in recent years we have learned from the left they were just asking for it. A ‘BAIT CAR’ participant said it all the other day, “I didn’t do nothing to nobody, the keys were in it!”.

    Have any of the readers of this report, ever watched “the first 48”? Do you notice a familiar theme to that show? Every single show, every suspect, can usually be identified on the police data base, with just a street name, AKA “little wiener”. That is because 95% of the suspects are repeat offenders, usually with a nice long rap sheet.

    Can someone please explain to me why our justice system believes that it has EVER rehabilitated anyone. The word rehabilitate means that the individual was once good, and just turned bad. Wrong, they were always bad, from birth to their eventual death, they have always been, and will always be, a drain on society. We need to wake up, and start treating these offenders early, with severe punishments. No more cable TV, certainly no gym’s that rival those of 100 dollar a month private businesses, so they can get stronger and more dangerous, while attending the “college of criminal behavior”. No more internet, no books, no letters, don’t even give them flavorful food. Grits, that should be the meal, 3 times a day, nothing more, EVER.

    In the US, crime does pay, sadly, many inmates have better living conditions than many of our Veterans, that is sickening on so many levels, our country is broken, it has lost it’s way. We better find it fast, or lose it forever.

    Just a guess, but have they checked this mans status as a resident of the United States, or would that “offend” some liberal?

    • Todd

      Yes, I did notice a familiar theme with almost every suspect but it was not his name. I, of course, can not mention what it was or I would end up being labeled. Oh well. I do agree with your entire post. We better wake up by November or we are done as a country.

    • Big Bear

      Agreed. The criminal brain is not wired the way ours our. The criminal thinks of only two things: ME and NOW.

      Bring back slave labor camps. That way, the criminals can be of some use instead of rotting in 8x8s. It would also create a cheaper market for our bling than China or 3rd World nations.

        No, but thanks for the compliment. My name is Anthony, and I am sick and tired of a justice system that is completely out of control. Revolving doors, putting predators back out on the street, sometimes with in months of sentencing on a violent crime, it is pathetic at best, and third world at worst.

        I now live in the Philippines, where I have no expectations from law enforcement, except to maybe ask for a hand out, or graft, if I give them the opportunity, which I try to avoid. I know that the murderers here go free, So I know that I need to be careful. In the US, you should have no need to be careful, because the wicked should be removed from society, but the false sense of security we get, from lying politicians, has created a more hostile and dangerous environment, even more than here in the Philippines, now that is truly pathetic.

      Lower the bar on capital punishment. A second conviction for a violent felony should get you the needle or better yet a public execution.

  • Spanky

    The second car jacking “victim” could only have been elderly frail woman, letting a handcuffed unarmed scumbag steal your wheels is just plain embarrassing.

  • BrunoT

    Yes, in most of America apparently your first carjacking is free. Your second one is free. But if you escape from them and make them look bad you may do some real time. Because everyone knows carjacking isn’t serious, right?

    • Danny

      I agree with you 100%. I can see someone that commits a crime of opportunity due to economic sercumstances, they may be rehabilitated, but these guys that are from the “hood”, that’s their “badge of honor”. Grits, three times a day for two years will make anyone think twice about going back into the slammer. They’re not in prison to have a good time, they’re there to be punished for breaking the rules.

  • Chuck

    He was only “holding” the car for somebody! What, you got a beef with that?

  • luckydog

    Liberals: reap what you sowed!

  • iambicpentamaster

    “Police say because of his attempted escape and other charges, he could be looking at a lengthy prison sentence.”

    And after early release he will quickly jack another car.

    To see who’s enabling criminals, look to the Obama Regime’s Open Borders, liberal judges, and fat, lazy court bailiffs and jailers.

  • kcsparky

    Long prison term in “Kennedyville”? You gotta be kidding. Word on the street is that with all of the progressive liberals in Massachusetts, not even babys are allowed to be kept in playpens.

  • Chad

    He was probably overwhelmed at the prospect that he could be prohibited from voting for Obama due to imprisonment.

  • roughman

    Say… You don’t suppose he was an ILLEGAL ALIEN, do you???

  • AmericanHeretic

    Plant a GPS tracking device with a small explosive capsule next to the carotid artery and send him back to Mexico.

  • levotb

    Why didn’t the CBS reporter mention whether Ortiz-Columbo is an illegal alien?

    • heatherfeather

      Dat ray-ciss!!

    • max

      u b raciss n sh*%

  • Ghoul

    He is not a carjacker, he is an undocumented valet parker.

  • S0C7

    Eric Holder will pardon him since he’s obviously a victim of White racism.

  • Don

    This guy needs to get put away forever. Or deported. But couldn’t the cops have the decency to cover him better? You never see a female prisoner walked out in her underwear. No decency for guys.

    • carlb

  • TMA1

    They will NOT lock this guy up for any length of time unless he can pay. If there is NO MONEY in it for the Judicial System thier is NO Pentaly.

  • carlb

    as usual the pc crowd failed to mention whether he was a illegal. i mean if you brazenly do what he did somthing else is going on. my guess the doj will step in and get him pardoned since obama needs every vote leagal or otherwise. angry americans are drooling to get to the voting booth in nov

  • tim

    is he a legal citizen or an illegal trespasser?
