Deputies with the Kitsap County Sheriff’s Office announced Friday they recovered a classic car stolen from a Poulsbo garage last weekend.

The 1930 Model A Ford Huckster, which was in a garage in the 14000 block of Norbut Lane Northeast, was believed to have been stolen between 10 p.m. on Saturday, Jan. 14, and 6 a.m. on Sunday, Jan. 15.

According to the sheriff’s office, a 911 call came in at around 1:25 a.m. Friday from a man who said he had found the stolen truck on Virginia Point Road near the intersection of Highway 308 in Poulsbo.

The caller said the truck was an old Model A. He then hung up without providing his name.

Deputies went to the area and found the truck parked on a dirt shoulder.

A deputy went to the owner’s home and gave him a ride to the scene. He then was able to get help towing the car to his home.

A 14-foot blue Duroboat and trailer were also stolen at the same time as the Huckster. They have not been recovered.

An investigation into the thefts continues.
