CHILDERSBURG – Police recovered a vintage car stolen from a Childersburg mini warehouse this week as break-ins were reported at more storage units in the city.

A white and blue 1965 Ford Mustang GT350 2+2 valued at $50,000 was stolen from a storage unit in the 34900 block of U.S. 280 on Monday between 9:45 and 10 p.m., according to reports made available Wednesday. The car was recovered from a residence in the 700 block of Ferry Road Tuesday at 11:50 a.m.

That storage unit was among 49 broken into between 8:45 and 10 p.m. Monday.

Merchandise taken from other units included:

A Remington 306 7400 with Tasco scope and wood stock, valued at $500; a Marlin .22-cal rifle with scope and wood stock, valued at $200; and a Stephens 20-gauge single-barrel shotgun with wood stock, valued at $300.
