Detectives recovered Dr. Phil McGraw’s stolen vintage car — a 1957 black Chevy Bel Air — Tuesday morning, according to the Los Angeles County Sheriff’s Department.
Since the TV host’s car was stolen from a Burbank repair shop in August, the Taskforce for Regional Autotheft Prevention — supervised by the Los Angeles County Sheriff — has been targeting car-theft rings throughout the county.
The investigation also led to the recovery of 13 other stolen vintage cars. In each case, the identifying number was changed to avoid being identified as stolen, officials said. Five of the cars are still being identified.
