A vehicle owner in La Vergne is learning a hard lesson. Their vehicle was stolen just before 7 this (Monday) morning at 122 Berele Shepsele Lane. City spokeswoman Rachel Heggen tells NewsRadio WGNS the owner left the car unattended with the keys in the ignition and the garage door open.
La Vergne Police located the vehicle on Murfreesboro Road, where a short pursuit took place. The pursuit was terminated for public safety reasons when the vehicle traveled at a high speed rate on the shoulder of Murfreesboro Road toward Nashville.
Heggen says the suspect is described a young African American man with dreadlocks. She reminds us with the weather getting cooler, all citizens should be aware and not leave their car running unattended.
