San Jose Press Release 11/11/13
On November 5, 2013, the San Jose Police Department arrested Jovana Washington, Antonio Moya, and Saul Garcia for multiple counts of carjacking, kidnapping, and robbery with the use of a firearm.
The three suspects were operating a prostitution operation in a San Jose motel over a three day period. On October 19, 2013, the suspects robbed a “john” at gunpoint of his personal belongings and attempted to carjack his vehicle. The suspects then moved to another San Jose motel and continued their operation.
On the evening of October 22, 2013, the suspects became increasingly violent when they conjured another plan to commit a carjacking. The suspects ordered a pizza from a nearby restaurant and when the pizza delivery person arrived, one of the suspects demanded his keys. Instead of leaving the victim at the scene, the suspects forced the victim into his own vehicle and kidnapped him.
During their drive one of the suspects fired a gun out of the vehicle. They later released him on the freeway. A couple days later, the Fairfield Police Department located the victim’s vehicle abandoned at another motel.
Follow up investigation revealed that the trio also committed a bank robbery in San Joaquin County while operating their prostitution operation.
