Someone stole Juice’s car

Published on June 24th, 2014 | by Joe Lawler

In 2005, when Juice was first starting out, the magazine did a giveaway for a 2005 Release Series Scion tC. It was a pretty cool car, but it also came plastered in Juice logos. We figured that whoever won this free car would paint over this so they weren’t stuck driving around in an advertisement for our fine publication.

But we were wrong.

We only know this because the Fort Dodge Police Department released information today saying that the car has turned up stolen prior to an arson in a building where the car was being kept. Surprisingly, the car is still decked out in Juice logos. Which means if someone is driving it around, it should be easy to spot.

For someone who is trying not to get caught, this could be a negative. But that’s not always the case, according to Detective Steve Hanson with the FDPD.

“I don’t know if they were stealing it to drive or to turn over to try to sell it,” Hanson said. “Without that kind of knowledge I can’t picture what the thief was doing.”

The last known license plate was 583WXL. If you see the car driving around, it’s not a Juice staffer. Contact Detective Steve Hanson at (515) 573-1426 or through the Webster County Crime Stoppers (515) 573-1444.
