SPRINGFIELD, Tenn. (WKRN) — The Springfield Police Department (SPD) thanked the public Wednesday morning for their help in locating a wanted carjacking suspect.
According to police, Jacob Brannon Patton was discharged from TriStar NorthCrest Medical Center on Tuesday. Surveillance footage showed him walking to the back parking lot of the 400-building and approaching an elderly woman in a 2002 white Toyota Camry. The car had a Tennessee tag of 588OWW.
Patton allegedly coaxed the woman to roll down her window slightly, at which point he forced her to exit the vehicle. He then fled the scene in her car.
A felony warrant for carjacking was issued for Patton. Wednesday morning, SPD announced Patton had been located and arrested in Springfield.
