Stolen Antique Car Returned To Family

VAN BUREN (KFSM) — An antique car that was stolen has been returned to the family that owns it.

The 1941 Chevrolet Business Coupe was stolen from South 26th Street. Now, the home is equipped with new locks and no trespassing signs to curtail chances of this happening again.

Police are searching for the suspect. One of the family members who owns the car said a man in Fort Smith bought the car with cash.

The family said they’re glad the car, that has been a part of their family for decades, has been returned. It belonged to Erin Likens’s grandparents before they died.

The family tells 5NEWS that a Crimestoppers tip led police to find the car. They also said they’re thankful for the support from the community and the tips that were received.
