Suspects sought in carjacking
A Holly Springs resident was carjacked at his residence on Martin Luther King Drive November 12, according to Holly Springs police chief Robert Pearson.
The victim stated that upon arriving at his home, he got out of his car to unlock the gate at the end of his driveway and was approached by three unknown male subjects. One of the males ordered the victim into the trunk of his car at gunpoint.
While in the trunk, one of the males pulled down the back seat area leading to the trunk and continued to hold the victim at gunpoint. The victim told police officers he was advised by a male subject, “not to do anything stupid.”
The victim was later released on Highway 4 East outside the city limits and the subjects drove away in the direction of Benton County. After his release, the victim telephoned his father to come pick him up.
Later the Holly Springs Police Department was notified that the vehicle had possibly been seen at a business on Highway 4 and that one of the subjects had been dropped off at that location and got into another vehicle. The two other subjects left the business in the direction of Marshall County.
The victim’s 1986 Oldsmobile Cutlass, a burgandy color with black top, was recovered Friday, November 17.
The Holly Springs Police Department asks anyone with information regarding any of these incidents above to call the department at 662-252-2122 or Crime Stoppers at 1-800-729-2169.
