A search was continuing Tuesday for the person who carjacked an Amazon delivery van at gunpoint in the San Pedro area and stole the packages inside.
The suspect armed with a handgun approached the Amazon driver about 6 p.m. Monday in the 800 block of West 12th Street near Daniels Field, ushered him out of the van and sped off in the vehicle, according to the Los Angeles Police Department.
The Amazon driver was not injured.
The van was found a short time later a few blocks away, but all the packages inside had been removed, police said. It was not immediately known how many packages were in the Amazon van at the time it was taken.
