SANFORD, Fla. (AP) - Police say a central Florida mayor was carjacked early Saturday while standing outside his home.

MESH (http://bit.ly/28Z1QPh ) reports Sanford Mayor Jeff Triplett was outside about 2:15 a.m. when three men approached, pointed a gun at him and stole his car keys.

Police say the suspects also stole Triplett’s wallet before driving off in his Mercedes.

Triplett gave a detailed description of the suspects to police and 18-year-old Jermine Jacques Horne and a 17-year-old were arrested a short time later. The third suspect has not been caught. It was not immediately known if either suspect had a lawyer.

Triplett said, “Being a victim of a crime is unnerving, yet it was reassuring to witness both speed and diligence from the Sanford Police Department.”

Sanford is about 25 miles northeast of Orlando.
