Tillamook Cheese Tour VW Mini Buses Stolen in California

It shouldn’t be too hard to spot the vehicles, as all of them are custom-painted orange with the “Tillamook” logo emblazoned on the sides.

(MANTECA, Calif. ) - Police say that the whole Tillamook Cheese Tour truck caravan was stolen from the parking lot of a Manteca hotel Saturday morning.

The trailer was parked at the Hampton Inn along Bass Pro Drive in Manteca, Manteca Police say. At some point between 12:30 and 6:30 a.m., police say, thieves took off with the whole caravan of vehicles – which not only includes a pickup truck and a trailer, but three classic Volkswagen Mini Buses.

The VW Mini Buses were in the trailer, which was attached to a Ford F-350, when the theft happened, police say.

Police say that the VW Mini Buses alone are worth about $100,000 each. The buses are used as a part of Tillamook’s promotional tour, each one highlighting the company’s different cheese, yogurt and ice cream products.

It shouldn’t be too hard to spot the vehicles, as all of them are custom-painted orange with the “Tillamook” logo emblazoned on the sides.

Tillamook was offering a $10,000 reward for the safe recovery of the microbuses.

Anyone who knows where the vehicles might be is asked to call the Manteca Police Department at (209) 456-8101.

The following is the vehicle’s description, along with their license plate numbers:
