At least they could have mentioned that it was the WCC '04

No rumors or slander here.

Magazine helps sheriff's case

Sheriff's investigators connected a man to the stealing of a rare Porsche after he posed with the stolen vehicle in a magazine.

Brad Roberts, 34, of Fremont was arrested Thursday on suspicion of stealing a 1969 914-6 Porsche. The vehicle is an extremely rare model valued at $150,000. Only three such vehicles exist. Officials said the other two prototypes are housed in a German museum.

The Porsche was not running at the time it was stolen. It was being stored next to a home in the Twentynine Palms area when it disappeared May 2, 2003.

Detectives who tracked the car through nine counties and 17 months later identified Roberts, an active Porsche racer and owner, as a suspect. In October 2004, Roberts appeared in photos with the stolen car in Excellence Magazine taken during a Porsche show in Northern California.

Roberts refused to cooperate and was moving the vehicle to different locations to avoid authorities, detectives said.
