Owner reports car stolen from paint and body shop



FORSYTH COUNTY, Ga. — A man reported his red 1992 Chevy Corvette stolen while it was supposed to be getting work done.

The man said he made contact with a man of a local paint and body shop Nov. 17, 2016. He asked the man to paint the Corvette and “get it back to show room quality.” He asked for it to be returned no later than Dec. 30, 2016.

The man said he never received his car back. He said he contacted the shop multiple times and found out his car was taken to North Carolina to be painted, which was not part of the contract.

The man said he texted the painter to return the car by July 15, or he’d file a stolen vehicle report. The man has not made contact with the painter since. The vehicle was entered as stolen.
