NEWS RELEASE
SUBJECT: K.P.D. Detectives Attempting to Identify Pair of Auto Burglars
DATE: July 14, 2015
CASE #: 15-011398
GENERAL NARRATIVE
On June 1, 2015 at approximately 10:00 PM, a white male and a white female entered an unlocked vehicle in the parking lot of McDonalds, located at 1501 Lynn Garden Drive in Kingsport. The pair rummaged through the vehicle and stole the faceplate from the car stereo and some loose change. At the time of the offense, the suspects were traveling in a black 4-door sedan.

Images of the male suspect and the black sedan were captured on surveillance video. Detectives are hoping that someone will recognize him or his vehicle, and/or know the identity of his female accomplice. Several photos are included in this release. Two clips from the surveillance video have been made available for viewing on the K.P.D YouTube channel via the links below:

Finally, the Kingsport Police Department continues to urge all citizens to always lock the doors to their vehicles, and always remove any items of value from plain view. Following this simple advice has been proven to easily make the difference in whether or not a particular vehicle is targeted by an auto-burglar.
