MANTECA, Calif. – Three iconic Tillamook Cheese microbuses, along with a truck and trailer, were stolen from a California parking lot overnight.
The bright orange VW buses, truck and trailer were on a public relations trip for the Oregon cheese company when they were taken from a Hampton Inn parking lot between 12:30 a.m. and 6:30 a.m., according to Sgt. Rob Armosino of Manteca police.
The fully restored microbuses are worth around $100,000 each. When the vehicles were stolen, the three buses were inside the trailer attached to the Ford F350 truck, Armosino said.
