South Salt Lake police say a suspect is at large after stealing a Lexus ISF from a dealership at 2865 South State. The vehicle has no plates but a license plate holder that reads, no kidding, "I practically stole this from C.J. Prestman."

Around midday Saturday, a hispanic man in his 20s asked to take the car on a test drive, says Sgt. Matt Budd, before telling a salesperson, "Hey, get out of the car." At that time the salesperson witnessed a gun by the suspect's leg, although it was never pointed at the salesperson, Budd said.

The car was followed to the area of 1300 E. 2700 South, but its current location is not known.

Police ask that if you see the car, do not approach it. Call 911.
