NASHVILLE, Tenn. (WTVF) — Police say they’re searching for juvenile suspects who ditched a stolen pickup truck before it crashed into a pond at an apartment complex.

A call for a water rescue came in around 6 a.m. Friday at the Stewarts Ferry Apartments near Donelson.

Metro police say the truck had been stolen on Old Hickory Boulevard sometime on Thursday. They received a call this morning that it had crashed into the pond.

According to officers, the suspects likely bailed from the truck while it was moving. It ended up in the middle of the pond.

A wrecker will have to remove the truck from the water.
