On March 27th, 2017, an attempted carjacking occurred in the east parking lot of Marie Callender’s at 1987 Hilltop Drive in Redding. The victim, 56 year old Susan Elliott of Redding was approached by
a white male suspect who brandished a firearm at her and demanded her vehicle. Elliott refused to relinquish her car and was able to flee the area in her vehicle without suffering any injury. Surveillance video of the incident was circulated nationwide via social media and news outlets.
In April of
2017, a crime bulletin from the state of Wyoming caught the eye of Redding Police Investigators working the attempted carjacking investigation. David Michael Hogan, a Virginia resident, who was 63 years old at the time, had been stopped for speeding in Laramie County, Wyoming. He was subsequently arrested for being a felon in possession of a firearm, and found to be carrying a large amount of cash. Investigation revealed Hogan previously spent over three decades in prison for bank robbery.
Hogan was ultimately found to have committed crimes in multiple states to include California, Oregon, and Wyoming. Investigators learned he was in the Redding area around the time of the attempted carjacking and he physically resembled the suspect pictured in the surveillance video. Investigators worked with federal and local law enforcement agencies in multiple states to gather information and evidence regarding David Michael Hogan. Evidence located in a stolen vehicle Hogan crashed in the area of Jackson, Oregon linked him to the attempted carjacking in Redding.
