On November 3, 2013, Guyer entered the W.I. Simonson Mercedes dealership in Santa Monica and requested to test drive a car.

He gave the salesperson an Arizona driver’s license, which was then photocopied and retained for the dealership’s records.                     

During the test drive, Guyer stopped the vehicle, told the salesperson he had a gun, and ordered the salesperson out of the vehicle. He then fled the scene. The vehicle was recovered six days later in Hermosa Beach.

According to Lewis, a felony arrest warrant was issued for David Guyer for carjacking on March 19, 2014.

He is described as a 45 year old white male, 6’2”, 190lbs, brown hair and green eyes with a closely trimmed goatee.  He also has a tattoo on his right arm and right forearm.  He also goes by the alias David W. Stoner, according to the FBI.

Guyer served in the U.S. Marine Corps and is purported to be proficient in martial arts. He has previously lived in Tracy, CA and Venice, CA and may be in the West Los Angeles or South Bay area. Both the FBI and SMPD are warning that he should be considered armed and dangerous.
