So here is the takeaway in this: If you have a vehicle you love, you don’t park it in a rural, unsecured largely abandoned location, in plain sight. I don’t believe that this owner really cared anything about this van and only wanted to drum up media attention regarding its theft in hopes that the press would raise interest in the van’s brief movie career, thus increasing its value and “sale-ability” after the case was over and the van was recovered. If the owner does get the van back, my money goes that this van will go to “highest profile” auction the owner can find, and they will probably be disappointed with the final sale price, because this is a non iconic vehicle that played a bit part in a forgettable movie! While I don’t condone anyone stealing anything from anybody (and I think that happening upon a vehicle, assuming it is abandoned, and just taking it is not only a cavalier action but theft), if this owner has already recovered $5,000.00 here and if they can regain possession of the van, how can justice not be served? Let’s face it, if not for the movie part, the owner would probably be happy that the van disappeared so they wouldn’t have to deal with disposing of it.
