MEMPHIS, Tenn. — Two men were arrested after a group burglarized a boxcar in North Memphis Monday, stealing $400,000 worth of Nike gear.

Memphis Police responded to a burglary at CSX Railyard at around 6:30 in the morning. They saw five cars, including four Nissans and a Honda, in the area.

According to reports, multiple suspects were wearing dark clothing and ski masks. They were seen carrying multiple boxes from a train to their cars.

Officers attempted to stop some of the suspects, but four of them fled the scene on foot. After a chase, officers caught Terry Sullivan, who had a Nissan key in his front pocket.

Another suspect, Robert Doyle, ran inside the business warehouse, which MPD says only had one door. An employee locked him in, and police went in and saw him hiding under a large toolbox.

The other two suspects on foot got away.

MPD says a black Nissan Maxima carrying an unknown number of suspects sped past and also escaped.

While investigating the scene, the following was found:
– 18 boxes of Nike shoes
– Multiple unknown boxes
– A Mississippi driver’s license
