Surveillance Video Captures Suspect Stealing Unlocked, Running Car at Gas Station

Mt. Juliet, Tenn. – Surveillance video captured the theft of an unlocked, running car at a gas station, where the car was later used in a shooting incident outside of Mt. Juliet. On March 11, 2018 around 7:35 p.m. officers were summoned to the Shell gas station, at 14422 Lebanon Road, in regards to a car theft. While the victim went inside the store to buy items, the car was left unlocked and running. A black late 2000’s model BMW 5 series, with a spare tire on the front driver’s side, pulls up, and an occupant jumps out and steals the victim’s car. The suspect, described as a tall, thin light-skinned black male, drove the stolen car away towards Hermitage.

Further investigation revealed that the car was involved in a shooting-related incident in Metro-Nashville on March 12, 2018. The stolen car has already been recovered, and it is being processed for evidence.
