The car which was stolen with its trailer and truck off of E. Jefferson Saturday night is a 1972 Camaro Z28, gold in color with black stripes down the middle. The car has a Kentucky license plate of PZZA1. 

The hauler and truck were found Sunday morning, but the car has not been recovered according to Detroit police.
