    "Endless powder days" was likely the motive for stealing it in the first place..

    Lot of people have seen it, doesn't sound like anyone has stopped it.

    It took four Fire Departments and two cranes to get it out of the tree. ;)

    Have to read both web links. The first regarding the theft and the second about the find.

    Colorful ending to a colorful tale. SWAT team to recover a stolen, vintage snow cat from some yahoo in Grand Junction. Can't make this stuff up.

    I needed a good laugh today.....Thanks again PugSki for delivering!!!

    I would like to amend the story:

    "...Cuervo has several outstanding warrants for his arrest that include felony warrants. Cuervo is described as a white male, 180 pounds, and 6-foot-1, with an IQ of 32. Anyone with information on his whereabouts or sees him is asked to call 911 immediately."

    Smart enough to use two vehicles, based on tips, White Ford and a tan Tacoma.

    Though not smart enough to tarp the whole thing.

    Cuervo’s compatriot, who was present during the thief, was questioned about the matter. He stated that Cuervo’s last words before taking off with the Sno-Cat were, "Man that would look great in my backyard. Here, hold my beer."

    I guarantee you weed was somehow involved in this incident.

    With so many other states legalizing marijuana, I hope the jokes about Colorado will someday be a thing of the past. This certainly doesn't help. :rolleyes:

    It takes large amounts of alcohol to do something that stupid!
