Default >>> CAR BROKEN INTO IN SAN ANTONIO, TX - 9/18/09 - 5 CARS STOLEN <<<

I know this isn't the right place for it but I want as many people to see as possible...

Got a phone call from Nick this morning letting me know that somebody broke into his vehicle while at a restaurant last night in San Antonio, TX before the TX State Pro-Series race.

Good thing (if that makes sense) is they only took 5 cars and a tire bag full of AKA tires.

This is what was taken:

Jason Branham:
Xray XT8 '09 Spec Truggy w/ O.S. Speed and KO radio gear (has those silver KO servo cases)
Xray 808 '09 Spec Buggy w/ Max Power M5B and KO radio gear (has those silver KO servo cases) (this car will be very easy to spot as it has a PROTOTYPE CHASSIS)
Both have mustard yellow bodies and black wings

Nick Vanderpool:
Xray XT8 '09 Spec Truggy w/ Max Power M5B and KO radio gear (has those silver KO servo cases)
Xray 808 '09 Spec Buggy w/ BRAND NEW O.S. Speed 2 and KO radio gear (has those silver KO servo cases)
Xray 808 '09 Spec Electric Buggy w/ Tekin RX8 Speedo/Motor combo
All have Silver/Orange/Yellow bodies and yellow wings


Please send any info you may come across.
PM or email me: roccom@rcamerica.com

I appreciate your help in advance!

-Rocco

I feel your pain. I got 5 complete cars stolen out of my car 3 years ago. Ironically they left my airtronics radio sitting right in the middle of my hatchback?

Hopefully a transponder is found. Other than the chassis thats the only way the car can be identified. Thats what the cops told me.

Did it seem like a smash and grab or did it look like they knew what they were after. Most Rc thefts like this allways seem to be someone from the track/shop/race.

Don't forget to check Craigslist.

Welcome to Texas.

what about this "prototype chassis" would make the car so easy to spot?

Xray must be the car of choice for Texass thieves My 808 was stolen from my truck in Dallas while at a race in December at Indy Rc. XB808, OS Speed, JR 9100's, Lipo, Custom body, AKA City Blocks, 2060 pipe, Spektrum Pro receiver, Blue Truggy Starter box w/Lipo, and Personal Transponder number 3113923!! I filed a police report with Dallas PD and when I told the detective what it was worth, she snickered like I was joking around Gotta love Texass!!
