UPDATE: Deputies locate missing car but not theft suspects

Posted

Weld County sheriff's deputies found a missing 1967 Plymouth Valiant that was among several items taken from a home north of Fort Lupton.

However, the search for the suspects continued. The car turned up in arvada early Sept. 9.

The theft happened shortly after midnight Sept. 5 in the 10400 block of Weld County Road 6. A press statement said neighbors noticed a flatbed truck on the property and lights on in a detached garage. The press statement from sheriff's office spokesman Joe Moylan said the neighbors were suspicious because the homeowners were out of town.

The statement said the neighbors drove onto the property, looked in the garage and saw two men trying to steal a pair of 1960s-model Chevrolet Corvettes. Neighbors tried to follow the suspects but got as far as U.S. Highway 85 and Weld County Road 2 before losing sight.

Moylan said the suspects didn't take the Corvettes but managed to steal several high-dollar items, according to deputies, including the 1967 Plymouth Valiant that belonged to the son of the homeowners.

 "In addition to the Valiant and other high-dollar items, the suspects stole 500 rounds of .308 ammunition," Moylan said. "Deputies, therefore, assume the suspects are armed and dangerous."

Moylan urged the public not to confront the suspects and, instead, call 911. Call 970-400-4547.
