SAVANNAH, GA (January 5, 2016): Savannah-Chatham Metropolitan Police Department’s Downtown and Central precinct detectives have obtained surveillance images of two recent auto thefts and ask the public’s help in identifying and locating the suspects.

One theft occurred just after 6 p.m. on Dec. 27 at a gas station on the 400 block of Martin Luther King, Jr. Boulevard. Two males arrived in a gold Chevrolet Impala that was recently reported stolen. The victim arrived in a black Jeep Compass. Both suspects exited the Chevrolet. One suspect distracted the victim as the second suspect stole the Jeep. The victim sustained a non-life-threatening injury while trying to stop the suspect. The vehicle was left running at the time of the theft.

Also, on Dec. 20,  at about 6:47 p.m. Metro responded to a convenience store on the 2100 block of Montgomery Street, after reports of a vehicle theft. Investigators believe the victim exited a blue 2006 Hyundai Sonata. Both suspects were sitting outside of the store in a silver four-door Pontiac sedan with a spoiler. One male suspect exited the Pontiac, before entering the Hyundai and driving away. The keys were left in the ignition of the stolen vehicle at the time of the theft. The stolen Hyundai was recovered with significant damage.

Investigators believe at least one of the suspects is involved in both incidents. That suspect is described as a black male in his 20s, with a dark complexion and his hair styled in twists. The suspect wears diamond stud earrings.  He stands roughly 5-8 to 5-10 and weighs about 150 pounds.
