Two vintage cars stolen from Puyallup warehouse

Two vintage cars were stolen this week from a Puyallup warehouse and the Pierce County Sheriff’s Department is asking for the public’s help in locating them.

Someone broke into a warehouse near 162nd Street and Meridian East sometime between 10 p.m. Wednesday and 9 a.m. Thursday and stole the cars, which are each valued at more than $150,000.

Stolen were a blue 1965 Chevrolet Corvette Stingray 2-door hardtop coupe and a dark gray 1970 Chevrolet Chevelle SS 2-door hardtop with black racing stripes.

“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 Corvette was purchased last year at the Barrett-Jackson auction, which is billed as “the world’s greatest collector car auctions.” It sold for $115,500. Tucci bought the Chevelle three years ago from a private collector in Arizona.

Tacoma-Pierce County Crime Stoppers is offering up to a $1,000 reward for information leading to the arrest and charging of the suspects.

Anonymous tips can be made to 253-591-5959.
