Vintage VW cheese buses stolen in Sacramento; reward offered
Three iconic VW cheese-sampling buses stolen in Sacramento remained missing Monday, and the Tillamook dairy company is offering a $10,000 reward for their recovery.
A Tillamook truck and trailer hauling the three buses were stolen early Saturday from the Hampton Inn in Manteca, according to Manteca police officials.
The next day, the truck and trailer were later discovered severely burned in Jamestown, but the three mini-buses were still missing.
Tillamook’s Loaf Love Tour team was visiting Sacramento to promote its cheese, according to a company statement.
The mini-VW buses are hard to miss. They’re painted orange, with words “Tillamook,” “Baby Loaf” and “Medium cheddar cheese” on their sides.
Anyone with details is urged to call the Manteca Police Department at (209) 456-8101.
