Pierce County sheriff’s deputies have recovered two vintage cars stolen from a South Hill warehouse last week.

Deputies found the 1965 Chevrolet Corvette Stingray this morning in the Gem Heights area of South Hill, sheriff’s spokesman Ed Troyer said. The 1970 Chevrolet Chevelle was recovered a few days ago in Tacoma, Troyer said.

Tips from people who saw media accounts about the stolen cars led to their recovery, he said.

Police were processing the cars for fingerprints and other clues but had made no arrests as of Friday afternoon.

“We do have some leads,” Troyer said.

The cars, each valued at more than $150,000, were stolen late Aug. 8 or early Aug. 9 from a warehouse near 162nd Street and Meridian East.
