Maurice Lowry Age
Maurice Lowry is 29 years old. He was born around 1992. After Maurice did the carjacking, he was caught based on calls by different people. The passengers Maurice told to get off the bus also called the police.
Maurice was caught after 20 minutes he got off the bus in the gas station. The gun found with Lowry was a 45-caliber gun with a laser attached to it. Maurice was detained, and luckily, no one was harmed in the entire highjacking.
