TN suspect nabbed in car theft

Last week, theft of a McCreary
County automobile led law enforcement
officers in two states to
become involved in capturing the
alleged perpetrator.

Waters reports the owner of a 2018
Toyota RAV-4 called local 911 to
report the theft of her vehicle on
Thursday (9-1-22) at approximately
10:11 a.m. According to the
KYIBRS report, a woman was near
her vehicle at her residence on Day
Ridge Road when a male subject
came from behind and told her he
was taking the vehicle. When the
victim told the perpetrator she was
calling the law, he responded that he
was in trouble in Tennessee, would
rather the law not be called, and
said he would return the vehicle to
the owner. The perpetrator then got
in the vehicle and drove off. At the
time of the McCreary County theft,
the perpetrator was described as being
about 5’8” tall with blonde hair.
He was wearing a ball cap, green
sweater, green back pack, and wore
a mask over his face.
