The truck and cargo trailer were found in Jamestown, near Sonora, on fire. Responding firefighters and CHP officers say the three mini buses were not among the damaged vehicles in the fire.

The missing buses should be easy to spot, they are painted bright orange with “Tillamook” on the side. They are VW buses, with Oregon license plates.

The Manteca Police Department is requesting for anyone with information regarding the location or theft of these vehicles to call (209)456-8101.  Tillamook is offering a $10,000 reward for the safe recovery of their three Mini Buses.
