Carjacking Suspect Arrested After Officers Use GPS Technology to Locate Stolen New Vehicle

Coordinated police work combined with automotive tracking technology led to today’s arrest of William A. Fuqua, 32, on charges of armed carjacking, felony evading arrest and unlawful gun possession by a convicted felon.

The female carjacking victim arrived for work at the Super Mercado at 1442 Gallatin Pike North Monday morning when a stranger, subsequently identified as Fuqua, approached and asked her for change. When the victim replied that she didn’t have any, she said Fuqua pulled a pistol and ordered her out of her 2021 model Toyota Venza. Fuqua jumped in and sped away.

Officers were able to track the new car via GPS coordinates and were ultimately able to shut the vehicle down. It left the roadway and crashed in the area of 44th Avenue North and Walter S. Davis Boulevard. Fuqua got out and started to run, but complied with officers’ commands to stop. A pistol was recovered a few feet from the car.

Fuqua is being held in the Downtown Detention Center in lieu of $95,000 bond.
