(Scroll down for video) Police are looking to arrest two car thieves who rented cars from Enterprise Rent-A-Car, before they sold them for half price to unsuspecting buyers in Craigslist, police in Tennessee said.
Nashville police said that they are looking to arrest 22-year-old Kaleb Louis and 20-year-old Maurice Lewis, both of Texas, after they were accused of stealing Chevy Suburban from Enterprise Rent-A-Car and stealing $30,000 from an innocent man who purchased the stolen vehicle.
According to the police investigation, one of the suspects rented the vehicle at the Nashville International Airport. The suspect used a fraudulent driver’s license and a stolen credit card.
The suspects flew into the state from Houston. They then advertised the vehicle for sale on Craigslist. They asked $30,000 instead for the vehicle valued at $60,000.
28-year-old Kyle Whitlow responded to the ad. Whitlow agreed to meet the suspects at McDonald’s on McGavock Pike near Lebanon Road.
When Whitlow gave them the money, he became suspicious as the sellers jumped into a vehicle and fled from the scene without even counting the cash.
When Whitlow tried to register the car in his name, he discovered that it belonged to Enterprise Rent-A-Car.
