An Arizona man is facing serious charges after he was released from prison and allegedly carjacked a man driving a truck carrying $1 M worth of Corvettes so he could use the vehicle to get home.

According to reports, on February 15, a 23-year-old man was released from prison and headed to the Willcox Loves Struck Stop in Willcox, Arizona.
