The stolen car is a black 2015 Nissan Frontier Truck with a Tennessee license plate number Y11-76D. The truck has a wheel chair lift in the bed of the truck.

One suspect was wearing tan pants and blue zip-up hoodie. The other suspect was wearing a black and grey t-shirt with red writing on it, blue jeans and had an afro.
