Snatched from a warehouse nearly a month ago, this rare classic Shelby Mustang was recovered, but it’s not great.
Police found a rare Shelby Mustang that was stolen from a warehouse three weeks before being discovered. The car was found in a what seems to be a sort of dumping yard, as other stolen vehicles were located at the site as well. While this might seem like good news, the car was not found in great condition, as it was partially stripped before being dumped. Before this, the car was said to be valued at $200K.
"I really want to thank the community, seriously, the city of Tulsa and the surrounding area. Because without them, we may not be where we are today. I kid you not we were flooded with tips. There were days where I was receiving a dozen tips a day. If it wasn't for the good people of Tulsa like I said, we may not be here today and be in the position we are in of recovering this vehicle,” said Lieutenant Chase Calhoun with the Tulsa Police Auto Theft Unit.
What remains of the Shelby is a little hard to look at. The car was recovered haphazardly hidden under brush cardboard, and blankets. “The vehicle is in tact (sic), but the hood, doors, and front fender were all removed. The engine is in tact, but the car has a lot of damage,” Tulsa police officials offered.
A twenty-one year old Nicholas Chamberlin was arrest on larceny of an automobile and second-degree burglary earlier last week, and now additional charges have been filed again Toni Morris and Roy Morris. Chamberlin worked for a moving company and was hired by the car’s owner. The Shelby was locked in a warehouse, but something obviously tipped him off to the location.
