Here’s an update to the Marco’s Pizza stolen vehicle incident that was reported in July…

Murfreesboro Police confirm that one of the suspects in that case is also accused of being involved in the Facebook Marketplace carjacking. 

Ja’Veon Brown, who was previously arrested in connection to the Facebook Marketplace carjacking and robbery, has now been charged with felony theft of an auto. Police say that Brown was the man who was captured on surveillance video stealing an Audi A4 from the Marco’s Pizza parking lot on July 19.

Apparently, the theft of the Audi happened when the vehicle’s owner went inside a business while leaving the car unattended and running.

Authorities reported the stolen vehicle was later located at Pointe at Raiders Campus Apartments, 2315 N. Tennessee Blvd.  After the car was recovered, it was eventually returned to the owner.
