A north Alabama man is in jail, accused of stealing a race car. Calvin Hunter is charged with theft of property.
The 33-year-old Orrville, man along with several others allegedly stole Andy Pugh's race car and trailer last July.
Police say the suspects broke into a Geneva warehouse and took the items which have an estimated value of around $50,000.
Much of the race car was stripped down for its parts.
Police chief Frankie Lindsey says it was part of a multi-state auto theft ring.
"We just recovered a stolen motorcycle from here in Miami. It’s believed that this ring was extensive and that this may be just the beginning," said Chief Lindsey.
Besides Calvin Hunter, Chief Lindsey says additional arrests are expected in the case.
