The host of some show called Barn Find Hunter has been touring Alaska in his 1965 Shelby Cobra. His tour, which includes three more Cobras and their passengers, had stopped in Girdwood overnight. Girdwood is a small community south of Anchorage, just off of the Seward Highway.
On Wednesday morning, it was obvious that the Cobra had been broken into during the night. There were prints all over the car, some dents in the rear fender, and the convertible top had been ripped open.
Alaska State Troopers, called to the crime scene, confirmed what was apparent from the tracks in the mud.
The stolen item? A small package of Fig Newtons, that had been left behind the seat.
That’s why us residents always say: Don’t bring food into your tents. Or your classic convertibles…
On the plus side, Barn Find Hunter has a good future episode.
