COLLIERVILLE, Tenn. (WMC) - Collierville police are looking for four suspects accused of stealing a new car from a Mercedes-Benz dealership on Thursday after two held an employee at gunpoint.

On Thursday afternoon, four suspects pulled up to the dealership, police say.

A store employee told police that two of the suspects attempted to take a new GLC300 from the dealership’s mechanic bay, so the employee interfered.

As the employee approached one of the suspects, the suspect pulled out a pistol and threatened the employee.

The two suspects then drove off in the GLC300.

The dealership was able to track the vehicle and it was located, unoccupied.

The employee described one suspect as a man wearing yellow gloves and a black hoodie with the white Nike logo “all over.”

The employee described the second suspect who threatened him as wearing a blue hoodie, black pants, and a black face mask.

The other two suspects were both described by police as wearing a black hoodie and black face mask.

The case is an active investigation.

Those with information are asked to call Collierville Police Investigations at 901-457-2520.
