SCOTT, Ark. (KTHV) -- Lonoke County officials recovered a 1986 Chevrolet El Camino that had been reported stolen back in March.
Deputies spotted the car sitting in a lot and discovered the VIN had been tampered with. They made contact with a man who said he'd purchased the car from another man from Little Rock.
Officials contacted the car's rightful owner, who said his uncle had bought the car for him. He said it was stolen earlier this year.
According to investigators, the car had been repainted. At this time, the man deputies initially contacted is not considered a suspect.
The car is set to be delivered to the owner.
