(Newser) – If carjacking is your line of business, it's probably a good idea to learn how to drive a stick shift. Police near Pensacola, Florida, say a woman stopped her car when flagged down by three teen girls last month, reports WEAR-TV. But once she did, police say Antoren Bell approached the car, pulled a gun, ordered her out, and tried to drive off, with the girls in the backseat. When he realized it was a manual transmission, he instead told everyone to get out and ran away. The would-be victim ID'd a suspect from a photo lineup, and cops have since charged the 19-year-old in the would-be carjacking, reports the Pensacola News Journal.
