KCK Man Indicted for Carjacking

KANSAS CITY, Mo. – Tammy Dickinson, United States Attorney for the Western District of Missouri, announced that a Kansas City, Mo., man was indicted by a federal grand jury today for carjacking.


Stephen D. Bagley, 25, of Kansas City, Kan., was charged in a three-count indictment returned by a federal grand jury in Kansas City, Mo.


Today’s indictment alleges that Bagley stole a 2008 Nissan Altima at gunpoint on June 22, 2014. Bagley allegedly brandished a Glock .40-caliber pistol during the carjacking. Bagley, who has been convicted of a felony, allegedly was in possession of ammunition.


Bagley is charged with one count of carjacking, one count of using a firearm during a crime of violence and one count of being a felon in possession of ammunition.


Dickinson cautioned that the charges contained in this indictment are simply accusations, and not evidence of guilt. Evidence supporting the charges must be presented to a federal trial jury, whose duty is to determine guilt or innocence.


This case is being prosecuted by Assistant U.S. Attorney Jess E. Michaelsen. It was investigated by the Kansas City, Mo., Police Department and the Bureau of Alcohol, Tobacco, Firearms and Explosives.
