“It's just a jewel for this country,” Bunfill said of his beloved car.

Then on Monday, the Sacramento Police Department says someone dropped the Cadillac off at their headquarters.

Bunfill's car was towed back to his house Wednesday at 2 p.m. One hour later, police announced 43-year-old James King had been arrested in connection with the theft.
