KINGSPORT, Tenn. (WJHL) – A local car dealership was the victim of a burglary that resulted in a damaged store window and a stolen Jeep window.

According to a report from the Kingsport Police Department, officers responded Monday morning to Friendship Automotive on East Stone Drive after receiving a call that a burglary had occurred.
