Just today, on the 18th of January, we learned from Jessica’s boyfriend Darin on Supraforums that with the help of a detective, they located the rest of Jessica Barton’s 1994 Toyota Supra along with many more stolen car and motorcyle parts that the thieves got to and stored in their chop-shop.
Surprisingly the chop-shop was only 10 mins away from the Jessica Barton’s boyfriend’s apartment, where the Toyota Supra was stolen. Thanks to a warrant obtained by the fact that the next door neighbors could easily identify many of the stolen parts lying around the backyard, police were able to storm the place and find thousands of dollars of stolen parts strewn all over the place.
According to Darin on SupraForums,
“When we got to the house there were about 10 officers there and they had one guy that was living in the house handcuffed. The chop-shop was full of stolen parts, tons of stolen motorcycle frames, about 12 license plates from stolen cars and bikes, stolen stereos in the kitchen cabinet, hid lights in the drawers, interior plastics laying all over the house. We found one of Jessica's Tial waste gates on top of the a/c unit, her complete wiring harness on the kitchen floor...the front sub frame from her car was laying in plain sight under their carport, still had the TRD motor mounts attached but everything else was stripped off it including the strange front brakes. Parts of her roll cage were sitting on the floor, all her lug nuts starter and her racing harness. My racing gloves were sitting on the table in the front room. It was just unbelievable, stolen stuff everywhere..everything that had a serial number on it at that house came back as stolen. They found a complete stolen motorcycle also that they were hiding behind the neighbors house."
Jessica responded back to all the posts of congratulations and support with,
"Yes we are very happy with the quick results and i cant believe they found even this stuff within a week of working with my detective. These guys steal alot of stuff and now are resorting to taunting me because we are putting in so much effort to recovering what we can. I want my stuff back man and I'm not gonna stop till I get it or them where they belong!"
It looks like Jessica will be getting her Supra back after all and justice will be served. Hopefully we can look forward to her building a bigger and better Supra than before,and this time around I’m sure she’ll be more careful where she parks it.
