NASHVILLE, TN (WSMV) - Metro Police arrested two teenagers Monday afternoon in for stealing a car. The suspects are both thirteen years old.

The detectives, who were undercover, followed the 2015 Hyundai Sonata—reported stolen earlier today from Whispering Hills Drive in South Nashville—into the Heron Pointe Apartments off Bell Road.

Police say the suspects "piggybacked" behind another car to get into the gated apartment complex. Officers followed the car inside.

The teens reportedly backed the car into a parking spot in a suspicious manner. When officers attempted to block the car in, the teen driving the car put the Sonata into gear and crashed into a vacant car in the parking lot.

The teens were then taken into custody and charged with auto theft. is now with you on the go! Get the latest news updates and video, 4WARN weather forecast, weather radar, special investigative reports, sports headlines and much more from News4 Nashville.
