The suspect is believed to have used a black market device to bypass the truck’s security system, unlocking the vehicle and starting the ignition.

On Nov. 29, the dealership reported to BPD that a vehicle left for service could not be located. Video taken in the early hours of either Nov. 23 or 24 showed a 2015 Cadillac Escalade taken in the same way as the Sierra. The suspect on the footage appears to be the same individual, Earls said.

Both vehicles and incident reports have been entered into the National Crime Information Center (NCIC) system. Anyone with information is asked to call BPD at 601-833-2424.
