Alleged gang member sentenced in Mesa carjacking

PHOENIX — An alleged gang member has been sentenced to 18 years in prison
for a carjacking and armed robbery in Mesa.

Maricopa County prosecutors say 33-year-old Jasper Jay Stewart committed the
crimes while on probation for four previous offenses ranging from drug
possession to credit card theft.

Stewart was accused of carjacking an SUV from a woman in Mesa on Sept. 7.
Police found the vehicle less than three miles away and arrested Stewart based
on a description provided by the victim.

Mesa police say they later connected Stewart to an armed robbery Aug. 28 at a
Mesa coffee shop. A woman says a man stole her cash, credit cards and cellphone.

Stewart later pleaded guilty to robbery, armed robbery, theft of means of
transportation and trafficking in stolen property.
