Last year the Internet was abuzz on the disappearance of a 1970 Chevelle SS from the Goodguys show in Indianapolis. Keith Parmer of Michigan had spent $300,000 on his pride and joy over the years, only to have it stolen from his trailer at a major automotive event.
Now the ABC affiliate in Indy is reporting that Herbert Lee Jones III has been arrested for receiving stolen property and auto theft.
Seems that Jones called Parmer and said he received the car in trade for a motorcycle and that he’d sell Parmer the Chevelle for $20,000 or, within two weeks, the car would be parted. Police arranged for undercover detectives to meet with Jones on April 12, 2014. When Jones arrived with the Chevelle, he was promptly arrested.
No word on the condition of the Chevelle, but it is the third of four stolen cars from the Goodguys event that have been recovered, with two of them recovered within a week.
