    MEMPHIS, Tenn. - Memphis Police are looking for the two people responsible for a short crime spree that took place early Thursday morning. 

    It all began with a stolen Black Chrysler 300 out of the Mt. Moriah area. Shortly after, the Chrysler was used in the commission of a another carjacking near Raines station. The two suspects and the Chrysler matched the description of a third carjacking that happened in Cooper Young. 

    “That’s terrifying,” said Cooper Young resident Courtney Moody. “I walk past that intersection everyday to take my kids to and from school.”
