If you live up in Northwest Washington State, be on the lookout for a Nassau Blue 1965 Corvette Coupe and an all-original 1970 Chevelle SS that were stolen from a warehouse in Puyallup, south of Seattle. The two classic cars were owned by Gary Tucci and were stolen sometime last Wednesday night.
Tucci says the two cars were valued at more than $150,000 each. The Corvette was purchased last year at a Barrett-Jackson collector car auction for $115,500. The Chevelle was purchased three years ago from a private collector in Arizona.
“I want to get my babies back,” said owner Gary Tucci. “They’re very high-end… I mean, they were perfect. They were tough to lose.”
The method of entry into the warehouse is interesting to say the least.
Tucci says that sometime on Wednesday, his neighbor admits to accidently crashing his truck into the wall of the warehouse, creating a hole. After the neighbor left the scene, Police believe that one or more individuals climbed through the hole, found the key box and simply drove the cars out the garage door.
A $6,000 reward is being offered by Crimestoppers for information leading to the arrest and charges against the suspects. Please call 253-591-5959 if you have any details.
