The Nelson’s had spent thousands of hours restoring the car and put it on display at local car shows.

Sheriff Dutton also told MTN that he was happy to inform the Nelsons their car had been found, but it may not be returned to them right away.

“We will be told by the county attorney’s office when we can return it because it has been officially entered as stolen, so when the county attorney releases it, then we’ll release it,” stated Dutton.

Sheriff Dutton said that officers also found another cargo trailer stolen from the Helena Police Department and other items that may have been from other burglaries. One person is likely to be arrested, according to Sheriff Dutton, and they are currently working on an individual of interest.
