A 51-year-old Salina man is without his 1966 Ford Thunderbird after someone stole it.
Salina Police Captain Paul Forrester said Wednesday that sometime between 9:45 p.m. Monday and 6 p.m. Tuesday, someone stole the car from where it was parked in the 300 block of Otto. The owner, who still has the keys, had moved the car outside from where it was stored so he could do some painting, Forrester said.
The car was described as being maroon with a black top and having a Kansas antique license tag of 212461, he said. The car was valued at $18,000, Forrester said.
The car was seen by a patrol officer at 2 p.m. on Tuesday near the intersection of South Kansas Avenue and Gypsum Avenue, but at that point, the car had not been reported stolen, he added.
