Thief steals Model A from churchgoer, crashes it

PRINEVILLE, Ore. (AP) — Central Oregon authorities say a 79-year-old man took his 1930 Ford Model A coupe to church on Sunday to show it off.

But when he left it so he could get a bite of lunch, sheriff’s deputies say it was stolen and crashed into the Crooked River south of Prineville.

Photos show the mangled vehicle in the river, but no estimate of the damage was immediately available.

Capt. Michael Boyd said deputies couldn’t release the name of the owner.

Boyd said 34-year-old Erik Blake Halpin, described as a transient, was arrested for investigation of drunken driving and unauthorized use of a vehicle. He swam to shore and was arrested after he was treated at a Bend hospital.
