Jason Wehe was given a five-year prison term for a July 2 carjacking at a parking lot at the Westfield Plaza Camino Real mall in Carlsbad.

In the video, Wehe is seen walking past a white 2002 Honda Accord, but then turns around and quickly jumps into the car.

The owner, identified as Richard Palmer, gets to Wehe before he could close the driver's side door. The video then shows Palmer being dragged while hanging from the door as Wehe puts the car into reverse.

Palmer's wife, Nora, is then nearly rammed by the car before it speeds away.

The Palmers' car was eventually found and Wehe was arrested. Authorities said Wehe was already on probation for a Nov. 2011 incident.

10News learned Wehe's criminal record stretches back to 2001 and includes 11 total arrests on theft and drug charges.
