Good day Officers,

I have filed a report with LAPD but they did not ask for any pictures or anything that might identify my vehicle from a distance, it is a very unusual color. I am not sure what else I can do to recover my car which I had owned for almost 20 years so I have attached a few images in the event they may be of use in the recovery of the vehicle or the prosecution of suspected thieves. Feel free to contact me if you have any questions, contact information at the bottom of the page. Thank you.

On Monday, 04/19/2010, CSO Fitzsimmons took a report on a burglary that occurred in the 1200 block of  S. Farrell Drive (1004P-4337).  The burglary was at least four months old.  Two vehicles were stolen from that vacation home; one was recovered today with a suspect in custody.  The recovered car was in very good condition, a 1968 classic car, Mercury Cougar XR7 gold.

1974 Chevrolet Corvette Stingray
VIN/1Z37J4S420559
LIC/349KYK (CA)
Color: Bright White with T-Tops
Date of Theft: 04/19/2010
Stolen From: 1200 block of S. Farrell Drive, Palm Springs
Reporting Agency and their case number: Palm Springs PD Case # 1004P-4337
Reporting Agency contact number: 760-327-1441
Further Description of the Vehicle: The vehicle had 2000 miles on it. The victim reviewed the attached photo (taken from the internet of another vehicle – not actual stolen) and stated “This car is its twin.  It is bright white, and has a ” whitewall on the tires, and black interior rather than tan, but otherwise, if the T-tops were off it is exactly the same rims and all.”

The vehicle may have been registered by a suspect, or may have a vin number switch.  The vehicle is a classic and is still outstanding – you may see it on the road.

Thank you!
