On September 11, 2019 at approximately 12:45 PM, a woman parked her blue 2005 Hyundai Elantra 4-door sedan in the parking lot of Advance Financial, located at 2357 Fort Henry Drive in Kingsport, and entered the business.

While inside, she observed a white male suspect enter her vehicle and drive away in it. In the vehicle when it was stolen was her purse, which contained her bank cards, her cell phone, her house keys, her TN driver license, and a significant quantity of prescription medications.
