Suspects sought in Clarksville, TN car burglaries

Clarksville, Tennessee (WKRN) – The Clarksville Police Department is looking for four people who are said to be involved in a series of car burglaries and at least one car theft.

Earlier this month, police said someone had stolen a Nissan Altima from a Smithson Lane apartment complex.

Following the theft, several car thefts were reported in the area, some of which were filmed by a camera.

Surveillance footage shows a group of four people getting into cars looking for valuables.

“The people who stole this vehicle jumped in a car, checked the doors of the vehicles and stole things from people’s cars,” said Clarksville police spokesman Scott Bobien.

Beaubien says police have found the missing Nissan and found evidence pointing it to Governor’s Square Mall. It was there that security cameras filmed four suspects inside.

According to Beaubien, almost 90 cars have been stolen in Clarksville since January 1. That’s about a car a day. He says there are at least 20 weapons stolen from inside the cars.

“If people just lock their cars, if they don’t leave their car unattended and work, and secure their valuables, secure their firearms, that would save a lot of trouble,” Bobien said.

If you recognize the people in the surveillance video, you should call the Clarksville Police Department or Crime Stoppers at 931-645-8477.
