INDIANAPOLIS (AP) — Police say investigators have found a Michigan man’s restored 1970 Chevrolet Chevelle worth more than $100,000 that was stolen during a September trip to Indianapolis for a classic car show.

State police say car owner Keith Parmer of Holt, Mich., received a call last month from a man who said he had purchased the Chevelle but would return it to for $20,000 to cover his investment.

Sgt. Rich Myers says undercover detectives arranged a meeting with the man in an Indianapolis suburb to discuss the deal and took him in for questioning. The 31-year-old Indianapolis man was arrested Friday on charges of receiving stolen property and auto theft.

Myers says the Chevelle was recovered intact.

Parmer said the car was stolen from his box trailer parked outside a motel.

For fellow Gary native CJ Williams, being a Michael Jackson tribute artist is not about mimicking the spins and splits. It's about paying homage to the King of Pop.  Williams, who took third place at a recent talent contest in Gary coinciding with the anniversary of Jackson's birthday, has spent 12 years as an impersonator.  He has performed in Los Angeles, Philadelphia and Ohio and has plans to take his show farther.  (AP Photo/The Times, Jonathan Miano )  MANDATORY CREDIT; CHICAGO LOCALS OUT;  GARY OUT

That RV, Hood’s home, may have finally found a permanent parking space thanks to kindness bestowed upon him by strangers , including a local accountant, a grocery store owner and a property owner and several county officials who asked to go unnamed who were intent on making sure the man can live his simple life without fear of being run off.
