A Bartow County couple, Christopher Chase Bennett, 31, of Cartersville, and Haley Partin, 24, of White, was arrested this week after reports said they carjacked a vehicle in the area of North Tennessee and Fairview Streets in Cartersville.

Reports said that the stolen vehicle was later found in White, where the two suspects were taken into custody.

Cartersville police added that Bennett escaped custody by exiting through a malfunctioning door and fled. He was found behind a residence on Martin Luther King Jr. Drive and arrested.

They are both charged with armed robbery, hijacking a motor vehicle and possession of a firearm during the commission of a felony. Bennett is also charged with escape and Partin faces a battery charge.
