Two Accomack County Men Arrested and Charged With Car Hijacking

ACCOMAC –– Two men suspected of a carjacking in Accomack County three weeks ago have been arrested and charged, according to the Accomack County Sheriff’s Office.

Issac Scarborough, 26, of Parksley, and Larry Payton, 39, of Parksley have been accused of carjacking a red, four-door Jeep Cherokee and forcing a man to withdraw money from an ATM June 28.

Around 1 a.m., the vehicle’s owner offered a ride to one of the suspects, who was standing near Lankford Highway.

After dropping the passenger off in Parksley, the driver was approached by the second assailant. The two men assaulted the driver and drove to a nearby bank ATM, where they demanded money be withdrawn from his account.

Scarborough and Payton released the victim near Mappsville and drove off in the stolen vehicle, Sheriff Larry Giddens said in a prepared release.

Scarborough was arrested on the charges of abduction, robbery, grand larceny and credit card larceny July 14.

Two days later, Payton was arrested and given the same charges.

Scarborough is currently being held in the Accomack County Jail with bond denied.

Payton is incarcerated at the Eastern Shore Regional Jail with bond also denied.
