A career criminal with more than 10 felony convictions is now wanted in connection to a Rosedale mall carjacking, according to Ramsey County Sheriff Bob Fletcher.

Leon Kismet Bell, 48, allegedly put a gun to a woman’s stomach during a Feb. 16 carjacking in the Rosedale mall parking lot in Roseville, Minnesota.

“If you see Bell please call 911 immediately and report it to your local law enforcement. A Ramsey County warrant has been issued for Bell. If you believe you have seen Bell in the past few weeks please message us. Use caution. Do not approach him,” Fletcher said.

A second man, Jack Mitchell Piche, has reportedly been arrested in connection to the same carjacking.

Another carjacking took place just two days prior outside the same mall. Bell has racked up at least 12 felony convictions during his 20-year criminal career that began with an aggravated robbery in 1998.

Most recently, Bell was sentenced to 21 months in prison for felony theft but his sentence was stayed. He instead received five years of probation.
