A community’s athletic utility vehicle, stolen by brazen robbers, has been found abandoned in a neighborhood.
FOX40 reported Monday about Ripon’s ‘Rhino’ vehicle, that was found missing last week.
The Ripon Community Athletic Foundation said despite the vehicle’s rundown appearance, missing doors and tailgate, it was a critical part of maintenance work on campus. The battery was dead, so whoever took it not only cut through a fence, but they would of had to jump the battery or tow it away.
Tuesday morning, just before 6 a.m., waste management crews in Manteca reported finding the Rhino parked in a neighborhood.
The battery was jumped, and it was driven the ten miles back to its home.
No word on who may have taken the vehicle, or if anyone will be charged.
