Deputies seek man wanted for armed carjacking in Aiken

Aiken County deputies are looking for a man wanted for carjacking and possession of a weapon during the commission of a violent crime.

Deputies say John Henry Blocker, 49, flagged down a man driving down Outing Club Road at about 11:30 p.m. on Oct. 13. Deputies say Blocker pointed a gun at the man, forced him out of his car and then fled in the victim's car.

Several shots were fired before Blocker left in the car, deputies said.

Blocker also has a warrant for his arrest for receiving stolen goods in connection with an incident that happened on Sept. 10, according to the sheriff's office.

He is considered armed and dangerous.

Anyone with information about the whereabouts of Blocker, or about this case can call the sheriff's office at 803-648-6811 or Crimestoppers at 1-888-CRIME-SC.
