Police Ask For Tips After Vehicles Are Stolen From Limo Fleet
COMMERCE CITY, Colo. (CBS4) – Police in Commerce City are looking for suspects after several vehicles were stolen from a limousine business.
Police in Commerce City are hopeful that the public will help them find several vehicles from a limosine fleet that were stolen over the weekend.
On Saturday night someone stole five vehicles and a trailer from A Custom Coach Transportation, located at 6240 East 49th Drive.
“In 25 years of doing business I’ve never had a vehicle stolen. I’ve had them dinged, dented, wrecked, crashed … but never stolen,” said business owner John Hafer.
Police are still investigating how so many vehicles could be stolen from a single business in a single night.
Commerce City police spokesman Officer Christian Rasmussen said the stolen vehicles share some distinct features that could make them stand out.
“All the vehicles have red licenses plates that say ‘COACH’ followed by a number,” Rasmussen said.
“They also have a number on the side ‘LL249’ so if the licenses plates have been taken off maybe they have left those stickers on the car,” Hafer said.
Until Hafer gets his entire fleet back in service, he said his business will take a hit.
“That’s my living,” he said. “I make my living having those vehicles and the drivers make their living at having those vehicles.”
The stolen vehicles had plates COACH1, COACH11, COACH14 and COACH23. They are as follows:
– A black Ford Expedition
– A black Ford Excursion
– A grey Lincoln Town Car
– A white van with a raised top
Hafer’s white Chevy 2-wheel-drive short bed pickup was also stolen.
Police said the trailer is white and has a large eagle on the back.
“Hopefully with (the public’s) help we’ll find these cars,” Hafer said.
