1968 Chevrolet Camaro stolen in Lawrence found Tuesday

April 10, 2012


A Lawrence police officer on Tuesday morning in Shawnee County helped recover a 1968 Chevrolet Camaro that was reported stolen Jan. 5 from the 3100 block of Ousdahl Road. Sgt. Trent McKinley, a Lawrence police spokesman, said that the suspect was interviewed by a Shawnee County Sheriff’s deputy regarding the car and that the suspect in possession of the car claimed he had purchased it from a Lawrence resident. The Camaro, valued at $12,000 in the police report, was orange and black, but it had been painted all black when it was recovered, McKinley said.

Authorities are still deciding whether the man who was found in possession of the car Tuesday would face charges in Shawnee County or Douglas County, McKinley said.

In Kansas, you can get an antique title with only a bill of sale. The bill of sale need not be notarized. This Camaro would qualify since it is 35 years old.

BUT since it is newer than 1950 something (can't remember the exact date), it would also require the buyer to get a VIN inspection. They do a 50 state check to see if it had been titled, stolen, etc.

Was there a bill of sale? Title transfer signatures notarized? I am thinking not.

Perhaps, just perhaps, this individual was the victim of a scam. It's been known that people have bought houses and other items from individuals purporting to be the "owner."

DUH! That should be a no brainer.
