STOLEN U.S. VEHICLES.

A car purportedly destroyed in the Sept. 11 World Trade Center terrorist attack is among 28 vehicles reported as either stolen or destroyed in the U.S. that have been recovered in the Dominican Republic. The vehicles, valued at nearly US$1.4 million, have arrived back in the U.S. After a nearly six-month investigation, agents with the National Insurance Crime Bureau (NICB), the Federal Bureau of Investigation (FBI), U.S. Customs, the Dominican Government and the Dade Auto Theft Task Force located and recovered the vehicles, which were illegally exported to the Dominican Republic. All the vehicles are in perfect condition and were found in various locations in and around the Dominican Republic. As part of this ongoing investigation NICB and FBI agents have determined that over a three-year period approximately 1,500 vehicles were stolen from the U.S. and subsequently transported to the Dominican Republic for resale on the black market. Of the 26 vehicles that are being repatriated, most have been stolen from either Florida or New York.
