Finding a stolen car led police to a much bigger discovery, according to the Memphis Police Department (MPD).
MPD said a woman’s black Infiniti G37 was stolen from G.E. Patterson Avenue on May 8.
Ten days later, police said they found her Infiniti sitting in the driveway of a house on Pickett Cove. Several men were in the yard of the home, including 18-year-old Jamal Terrell who shut the Infiniti’s door and locked the stolen car before running into the house as officers approached, police said.
