MEMPHIS, Tenn. – A Memphis man says his car was stolen while dining at a local restaurant over the weekend.
Elijah Williams told FOX13 that he has seen his vehicle stolen multiple times on social media since his disappearance.
Videos have gone viral showing thieves moving around the city, spotted in several places in the car.
Williams’ vehicle is highly coveted by those involved in the illegal street racing scene. The culprits drove off with his 2016 SRT Scatpack Challenger on Saturday night while watching the Grizzlies game at a popular pub. When he returned to the parking lot, his car was no longer there.
“My whole car was gone, so I didn’t know what to do; I was in shock,” Williams said.
Immediately after the men left with the car, they reportedly headed to a University of Memphis fraternity house, where they are accused of breaking into a truck seen in surveillance video. The owner of the truck told FOX13 anonymously that some of the men who showed up there were armed.
“With this type of car, they are the most stolen cars in town,” Williams said. “I was angry that this happened to me at that time.”
In another recent video, the people Williams said the police were watching are seen making donuts in his SRT.
When you take a closer look at the video, the passenger hangs out the window holding a Draco-style pistol.
“As long as they know it wasn’t me. I don’t live recklessly. I just had to do my part; I’m going to let the police do their part,” Williams said.
