Memphis police have made arrests of two men for multiple car thefts in the city.
Yesterday, a man reported to police by making a call to them about prowlers outside his home in the 200 block of Buena Vista Place.
He informed police he heard his neighbor’s car alarm going off and observed five men walking away from the vehicle toward another one, according to an affidavit.
The man approached the suspects and informed them he was calling the police.
The suspects fled from the scene.
A clerk at an Exxon on Poplar Avenue flagged down police and informed them the suspects ran behind the business, according to the affidavit.
A foot chase ensued, and police were capable to apprehend all five suspects.
Cornell Scullark and Courtney Gray were identified.
According to the affidavit, Scullark had keys to a stolen Hyundai Sonata.
The value of the stolen car is $2,807.
Officers located a woman at the location on Buena Vista Place who informed them her Mazda CX-9 has been burglarized and that she was missing an Amazon package with New Balance shoes inside.
Police made recovery of the Amazon package.
Another victim informed police about how his Ford Mustang was vandalized.
The driver’s side door was damaged and the suspects left pry marks on the vehicle where they attempted to gain entry.
During an investigation, police found the suspects were associated to other auto burglaries around the city.
Scullark has been charged with seven counts of Motor Vehicle Burglary and other crimes.
He admitted to driving the stolen Hyundai Sonata but rejected any participation in the burglaries, the affidavit noted.
