MEMPHIS, Tenn. — Carjackers with handguns and assault rifles are swiping Volkswagen cars in Memphis. While the vehicles have been recovered, the Memphis Police Department is asking for your help to identify those responsible.
MPD says the same suspects are wanted for two separate carjackings. The first happened May 17 at 3561 Pueblo Road. That’s where three to four people with handguns and assault rifles stole a 2017 Volkswagen Jetta from someone. Then on May 23, three to four people with handguns and assault rifles stole a Volkswagen Passat from someone.
MPD's Violent Crime Unit Investigators say the same suspects committed both carjackings. They say the suspects hangout in the Frayser area in the neighborhoods surrounding University Street and Corning Avenue. These suspects should be considered armed and dangerous.
