Dude, where’s my Humvee? For real, the California National Guard needs your help finding it
That green camo will make it really hard to find
The California National Guard needs your help locating one of its Humvees, which the FBI office in Los Angeles announced had been stolen in Bell, California on Friday.
According to photos of the green-painted chariot, the Humvee belongs to the 40th Brigade Support Battalion, which is based in Bell.
The FBI is offering up to $10,000 for information that would help locate the vehicle, the agency tweeted on Saturday. The Humvee is worth about $120,000, according to the Associated Press, which first reported the theft.
Besides the green-camouflage paint job, other identifying information include the bumper number (40BSBHQ6) the admin number (WV57TO-HQ06/M1165A1) and the registration number (NZ311R), the FBI wrote in its tweet.
Among military vehicles, Humvees seem to be a popular target for thieves. The FBI’s tweet comes about six months after two men in Arkansas stole an Army Humvee at gunpoint before proceeding to flip the vehicle into a ditch about an hour later. In February, 2018, a man walked into a Washington National Guard armory compound, stole a Humvee then drove it straight through the armory gate. He then drove it to Yakima Training Center and said he wanted to join the Army, according to the Tri-City Herald.
Like those other two Humvees, we can only hope this one turns up soon.
