They Tried Carjacking A Helpless Woman, And They Ended Up Paying The Price…


Two saggy-pants-wearing thugs carjacked a woman and her son in the parking lot of a Bank of America in Clearwater, Florida. The story went viral after the fed-up “helpless” woman they targeted turned the tables on them. The punks definitely realized their big mistake too late.

Louise Ornduff, 36, and her son showed up at a Bank of America at the busy intersection of Belcher Road and Belleair Road at 8:15 p.m. on Monday, thinking they were going to buy a car.

The two carjackers, 17-year-old Jernalen Dreshaw Coleman and 18-year-old Lasupta Singletary planned to meet with Ornduff for the possible sale of a Nissan Rogue, according to a Clearwater Police Department.

However, when they arrived, the suspects were armed and demanded the keys to Ornduff’s car, which Kalaeb was driving at the time. The suspects then drove away in the stolen car, likely thinking that they had pulled off the heist and would not be held accountable. Unfortunately for their young egos, that was far from the case.

Ornduff immediately fires a shot at them with her own weapon. She struck Singletary, prompting Coleman to drive to a nearby hospital, instead of making off with the Nissan Rogue. It was there that the 18-year-old was pronounced dead.

Police initially stated that they would be investigating the incident to figure out the circumstances that led to the teen’s death.

Anthony Rickman, a criminal defense attorney who was not involved in the case, told WTVT:

“What they’ll be doing is looking at surveillance videos, talking to witnesses to see when that shot was fired, how far the vehicle was when the shot was fired to determine if self-defense is actually a valid defense here,” Rickman said.

Clearwater PD Deputy Chief Eric Gandy told WFTS,Based on their history, which you can see before you, and the fact they were engaged in an armed robbery, leads something to…to their character I would say.” 

Guns related to the incident were recovered. Coleman was then charged with second-degree felony murder and armed robbery.

According to ‘Opposing Views’, many readers applauded the outcome of the case and the mother for doing what she needed to do in the situation:

“She was right in what she did and had to, I would have done the same thing had i been in her shoes and the police and courts should back her up and not take the defense of these criminals, help the police clean up the streets against crime,” one reader commented on Facebook.

“Everyone knows that the relatives of those two will say that they were good boys. They will probably say that they needed to steal the car to sell it to afford to live. Just wait until the b.s. starts people. I personally think that they both got what they deserved. Too bad for them,” another wrote.
