The car is a 1984 Chevy Corvette.   Police say the man spotted it at "Kars R Us" on Volunteer Parkway March 21st.

A week later, police found the car and returned it to the dealer.

Two weeks later in the early morning hours of April 15th, passed the "Kars R Us" lot and noticed lights on in one of the vehicles.   The officers said he saw someone trying to steal a Corvette - the same one stolen just days before.

Also missing in the theft - a car title, keys, and a gun.

"The gun is the most important thing because we're wanting to track that thing down," said Investigator Brian Hess, Bristol Tennessee Police.   "The car has been sold, but the gun is still out there."
