Subject: [RVK9] $10,000 REWARD for missing van/trailer - Vegas, LA,, Phoenix?
<......I'm writing because a member suggested
that this list might be able to help us recover our stolen van and
trailer. Thankfully, there were no dogs in it -- but it did have six
(unisured) Gran Prix motorcycles, and we want them back!
It was stolen late last Monday night (9/18) from a hotel lot in Las
Vegas. There is a good chance it is still in Vegas, BUT it may
possibly be headed west or south.
PLEASE be on the watch for the following:
VAN: 2001 Ford E-350 extra-long (15 passenger) window van, all
white, with Washington plate 278 SHV,
TRAILER: 20' Wells Cargo box trailer, WA license 9464SC, white
with "Bruce Lind Racing" in black on both sides.
Also has a/c unit (looks like a little box) and RV vent on top, dual
swing doors on back (not a ramp door), white box on front
We've collected $10,000 for a reward for return of the six Gran Prix
roadracing motorcycles, parts and equipment. For contact
information, a more detailed description, and pictures, please see
the Reward Poster at: http://www.geocities.com/rewardforbikes/
The poster also lists another website, tinyurl.com/mzmpw
which has detailed bike descriptions, VINS, etc.
Our van was being driven by a racer friend who is Japanese. He had
just picked up a Japanese friend after the race in California, and
they were headed for the race in Ohio this weekend. So his friend
had arrived in the US for the first time on Sunday, was in his
country for 24 hours, and had his passport, clothes, laptop, and
cell phone all stolen when they stopped in Las Vegas at the
Stratosphere for 45 minutes. What an introduction to this county!
Then his friend's partner and her five-year old son arrived,
ticketed to join them in Ohio, but, of course, are instead in Las
Vegas with them now. (And, unfortunately, all the clothes for her
and her son were also in the van.)
At least they have now seen how friendly and helpful most Americans
really are, and we appreciate everyone in the city who has offered
to help put posters out, take them shopping for clothes, and so on.
We REALLY hope when the thieves opened the trailer up and saw the
bikes were NOT the "supersport" type bikes that they could "chop"
and sell, but instead very specialized two-stroke racing machines
that can't be used for the street, they may just abandon the whole
trailer somewhere, just to get it out of their possession.
We are still in shock that everything is gone. We are hopeful that
it is still in the area, just parked somewhere, and we just need
enough people watching for it!
Please feel free to cross-post!
