Sanford Mayor Jeff Triplett was carjacked at gunpoint outside of his friend’s home early on Saturday morning in the same town where Trayvon Martin was killed in 2012.

According to WFTV, the mayor was standing outside of his friend’s home around 2:20 a.m., when two armed men and another man approached him and stole the mayor’s wallet and Mercedes after one of the armed men pointed a gun at the mayor.

The mayor’s life was threatened and he was made to get on the ground before all three suspects jumped into the mayor’s 2012 Mercedes-Benz ML350 on Chapman Avenue with his wallet and took off. The mayor’s wallet reportedly had his city identification, two credit cards, a bank card, and $300 cash.
