Posted: Updated:

YAKIMA--A couple gets carjacked and the thieves take one victim along for the ride.

It all happened around 11:00 p.m. Thursday at apartments on the 4800 block of West Chestnut Avenue.

Police say the victims were in their car when two men approached them.

One pulled out a gun and demanded their keys, then drove off with a victim still in the car.  The suspects pushed him out of the car a block away.

"Some of the people we contacted there are self-admitted gang members we're still investigating individual weapons and trying to trace them to individual crimes.  We're waiting for information to come back from the crime lab."

Fuller said they also found a small amount of methamphetamine.

Brothers Marcos and Robert Cruz, and Sandra Cardenas are being charged with possession and trafficking of stolen property.
