The wife of the mayor of Chester was carjacked at gunpoint Wednesday night in front of her home, and a suspect was caught hours later - with his pants down.

One man pointed a gun at Linder, told her to "keep quiet," and demanded her purse. Linder dropped her pocketbook and ran, according to court documents.

LAMAR RAYSON, who has lived in federal prison since 2007, wasn't going anywhere for decades. But yesterday, he learned that he's likely to die behind bars. Philadelphia Common Pleas Judge Alice Dubow sentenced him to 37 1/2 to 75 years in state prison for a 2004 Christmas Eve home-invasion robbery and rape in Wissinoming, Pa. Rayson, 29, will begin serving that sentence after he completes a 32-year sentence in federal prison that he received for his role in five armed robberies of city businesses in 2005, and a 2006 armed carjacking in Germantown.

The 80-year-old Bellmawr woman was getting into her car Sunday morning, having finished Easter breakfast at the Metro Diner on Route 130 in Brooklawn. It was around 10:40 a.m. and her family had just left when a man ran up, dragged her out of her car by an arm, and drove off. He was apparently fleeing after being recognized by employees at a nearby Rite Aid where he had shoplifted twice in two days, Brooklawn police said. The man had stolen merchandise around 6 p.m. Saturday from the drugstore directly adjacent to the diner, and returned early Sunday to do it again, Brooklawn officer John Gundle said.
