DENVER – In just the past week, members of a Colorado car club said they have experienced an unusual amount of vehicle thefts and are now asking for help to raise awareness of the issue.

An administrator with Simply Subies Colorado, reportedly the largest Subaru club in the state with over 1,600 members, told Denver7 that within the past week, at least ten of their members have had their cars stolen.

Charles Ohl contacted Denver7 and said two of those cars have been found, “one with a hole in the engine, the other completely stripped down."

Ohl said that over the past month, however, they have had countless other cars being stolen.

He said that even though police have been informed about the thefts, members are taking matters into their own hands by organizing block-to-block grid searches, posting on social media and asking anyone if the missing cars have been spotted.

“As of now, if I'm not mistaken, there are anywhere between 10-15 cars in the club that are currently stolen,” Ohl said. “Not to mention the close to 20 that have been found in various states of disassembly this past month.

Another mystery in the car community centers around a set of cars that have have been torched in Longmont, Colorado.

Six arsons were reported within 90 minutes in the downtown area, leading police to start a large investigation. 

Not long after, police found another vehicle torched in the Longmont area, saying the case was very similar to the string reported a week prior.
