Million dollar trailer theft

Written by

Santa Ana police were searching Friday, April 7, for thieves who stole a motor coach and trailer containing expensive and rare car parts, worth a combined total of nearly $1 million.

The thieves made off with the vehicle and parts for McLaren and Porsche sports cars about 2 p.m. Sunday, April 2, at Global Motorsports Group in Santa Ana, according to Santa Ana police Cpl. Anthony Bertagna.

Police found the motor coach, but it was stripped down, as well as the trailer, but it was missing the parts for the Porsche and a McLaren 570 GT4 race car, of which there are only about six in the country, Bertagna said.

The business owners were planning to race two cars in this weekend's Toyota Grand Prix of Long Beach, but the theft is making it harder to compete without the right parts.

Police are working with the owners to inventory the stolen parts, which will be difficult to fence because they are so rare, Bertagna said.
