Lawrence Edward Clay

An Amazon driver and another young man have been arrested and charged for trying to steal an Amazon Prime van full of packages.

According to Kent County Prosecutor Chris Becker, Rockford Police were dispatched to a reported carjacking of an Amazon delivery truck in the city of Rockford on June 28. Other metropolitan Grand Rapids police departments assisted in the investigation, which eventually led to the truck being found in the City of Wyoming. 

Lawrence Edward Clay, 21, the driver of the Amazon van, had reported the carjacking. Becker said that the investigation showed that the original report of a carjacking in Rockford was false.

“We have filed charges against Demarion Brewster, 18, and Lawrence Clay in this matter,” said Becker.

Clay was arraigned on July 2 on charges of Unlawful Driving Away of an Automobile, Larceny Over $1,000 but less than $20,000, Conspiracy to Commit that offense, and one count of Lying to Police in a Violent Crime Investigation. 

“The first three charges are felony charges punishable by a maximum of 5 years in prison, the last one is a felony punishable by a maximum of 4 years in prison,” said Becker. 

Bond was set at $40,000, 10 percent. Clay bonded out.

Demarion Brewster

Mr. Brewster is facing the same charges, he however is not charged with the crime of Lying to Police in a Violent Crime Investigation. His bond was set at $30,000, 10 percent. He is still in custody.

Both men are presumed innocent until proven guilty beyond a reasonable doubt.
