ST. Louis, Mo. (KMOV) – A federal grand jury has indicted an East St. Louis man on charges related to a carjacking earlier this year.

Brandon Best was charged with theft of a motor vehicle and a charge of possession and display of a firearm in furtherance of a crime of violence.

Authorities allege Best was one of two men who robbed a woman at gunpoint in the early morning hours of July 12 in the 1000 block of Geyer Avenue. The woman’s Kia was later seen in East St. Louis. The stolen car was then chased by police into St. Louis.

Best was arrested near Interstate 44 and South Jefferson Avenue. A handgun was found at the end of the chase, charging documents say.
