MEMPHIS, Tenn. — Memphis Police need your help catching criminals responsible for breaking into seven cars in Cordova and East Memphis in a matter of hours.
Police posted these images to their Facebook page on Thursday, January 27.
MPD said between 4 and 6 p.m. on January 26, two suspects occupying a black Dodge Charger with stolen Tennessee tags 28A R14 and a stolen silver Infiniti G35 with Alabama tags 1887BA6 are responsible for multiple vehicle burglaries in Germantown.
Police said the two burglarized vehicles at Wolfchase Galleria, Dillard’s, Chili’s, Dave and Busters and two other vehicles on Poplar and Poplar Crest Cove.
MPD said the two stole a SCCY 9mm handgun, a Hurley backpack, (2) Apple iPad Pros, and 2 iPad keyboards were taken.
Two days after an employee’s car was broken into outside of a doctor’s office on Poplar Avenue, thieves struck again, this time across the street at the Hampton inn, where some woke up to find glass shattered outside their car.
Melinda is one of the many people at the Hampton Inn whose car were broken into overnight. She claims as many as 10 cars were burglarized.
“The money is irreplaceable but what I had in my wallet was my mom’s picture, my mom died from breast cancer a year ago, and you know what they did? Took the picture and threw it on the seat,” she said. “Money can be replaced but what if I had been coming out there that time of night and they out there doing that. It’s ten cars the other people gone, ten cars.”
No arrests have been made in this case. Investigators are still looking for these two.
