Safety Alert

The Memphis Police Department is asking Cooper-Young residents to be on the lookout for a vehicle and 2-3 males who are suspects in the recent rash of break-ins in the neighborhood.  They are described as:

  • Driving an older model white SUV (possibly a Ford Expedition)
  • Suspects are African-American males
  • At least two males taking part in each break-in and possibly three

The suspects have been pulling into driveways during daytime hours for the break-in, so please be attentive to any unusual cars parked at neighbor’s homes during the day. The suspects’ SUV is one of their most distinguishing characteristics and has been consistent in all the incidents.

We ask that all residents please keep an extra watchful eye out.  The police are on patrol, but the more eyes on the street watching for suspicious activity the better.

If you see someone or an unusual vehicle matching this description, please contact the Memphis Police Department immediately at 545-2677 or 911 if a possible break-in is taking place.
