A Pensacola man wanted in
connection with an armed carjacking that occurred in January has been arrested.
David Lee Hicks, 28, was arrested
this morning in Phenix City, AL by U.S. Marshals. He was wanted for robbery
with a firearm, aggravated assault, possession of a weapon by a convicted
felon, battery, driving with a suspended license, and leaving the scene of a

was taken at gunpoint from a 31-year-old male. The vehicle was later found
crashed and abandoned blocks away from the crime scene.
Detective Gilbert Galloway Jr. said
Hicks is being held in the Russell County Jail and will be extradited to
Pensacola on the charges, but it is not known when.
