Lincoln County Sheriff’s deputies are looking for four suspects who allegedly stole a woman’s car at gunpoint Saturday night.

Sheriff Steve Rushing said the woman told deputies she was traveling on Nola Road near Beeson Road shortly before 5:30 p.m. when a small gray car passed her and then stopped in front of her vehicle, a white 2014 Porsche Cayenne SUV.

The witness said four males exited their car, forced her and a passenger out of her car at gunpoint and then left with both vehicles.
