CAMDEN COUNTY, N.J. -

Police in Pine Hill are looking for the suspect involved in a carjacking last week where the victim was forced to buy five bags of heroin.

According to police, the incident happened on November 13th just before 9 a.m. at a traffic light at the intersection of West Branch Avenue and Blackwood Road.

Police say the suspect entered the front passenger side door of the victim's vehicle and threatened the driver with a box cutter.

The suspect then forced the driver to go to North Camden, where the victim was told to buy the heroin, according to investigators.

Police say the victim then had to drive the suspect to the Walter Rand Transportation Center, where the suspect forced the victim to board a train to the Ferry Avenue station.

Once at the station, police say the suspect got in a cab and left.
