Orange Tillamook cheese vans stolen in California

Posted: Updated:

MANTECA, Calif. (AP) - Police in Central California are searching for three bright orange Tillamook cheese vans that were stolen over the weekend.

Manteca police say the restored Volkswagen minibuses, worth $100,000 each, vanished early Saturday from a hotel parking lot. They were secured in a trailer pulled by a Ford F-350 pickup that also painted orange. Police say it appears that somebody drove off with the entire rig.

The Manteca Bulletin reports (http://bit.ly/Wd9gDC ) that the truck and trailer were found torched 50 miles east in the foothill community of Jamestown. The minibuses are still missing.

Police say the minivans had stopped in Manteca on a tour promoting the Tillamook County Creamery Association's dairy products.

Police say each minivan has Oregon license plates.
