November 03, 1995|By FROM STAFF REPORTS

A man carjacked a Chevy Blazer used to deliver mail in the city school system yesterday.

The items reported missing from the truck included a package containing nearly 250 answer sheets from a basic skills test administered at Garrison Middle School. School officials will decide whether students who had taken the Comprehensive Test of Basic Skills will retake it.

Police said the truck was taken about 1 p.m. from in front of Alexander Hamilton Elementary School, in the 800 block of Poplar Grove St. Officials said the driver, William Simms, 35, struggled with the carjacker before being pushed out of the truck. Mr. Simms was not injured.

Last night police were looking for the blue 1987 two-door Chevy Blazer with Maryland license plate number LG 16421.

The carjacker was described as an unarmed man in his 30s, 6-foot-2 and weighing 200 pounds. He was wearing a blue checkered jacket and jeans.
