Murfreesboro, TN - The Murfreesboro Police Department is seeking the public's help in identifying an individual wanted for questioning in connection with a motor vehicle theft and vandalism case. The incident, which occurred on January 29, 2024, involves the theft of a Penske Rental truck from a lot off Butler Dr.

Upon realizing that the truck was missing, the legal driver utilized a tracking app associated with the vehicle. The app led them to a U-Haul facility where the stolen Penske truck had been located.

In an effort to gather information and progress with the investigation, the Murfreesboro Police Department has released an image of the person of interest, urging the community to come forward with any relevant details. If you recognize or have information about this individual, please contact Detective Ed Gorham at 629-201-5507 or email
