Steamboat Springs The black Burrito Babes truck with pink logos on the side is the latest vehicle theft in Steamboat Springs, but owner Suzanne Kibler said that's not going to stop her business on wheels from rolling on.
The black Dodge pickup reportedly was stolen from in front of Kibler's home in the 1500 block of Meadow Lane between 11:30 p.m. Monday and 1:30 a.m. Tuesday. The truck also had a dent in the tailgate from a parking lot crash several days ago.
Steamboat Springs Police Department Capt. Joel Rae said a series of three car thefts in Steamboat Springs is unusual and that the police department continues to investigate the thefts.
On Sunday, a 1993 Toyota 4Runner was reported stolen from the 500 block of South Lincoln Avenue. On Tuesday morning, a 1998 red Ford Explorer was reported stolen from the 2400 block of AprÃs Ski Way.
"Hopefully they show up and turn out to be a joyride, and there's no damage," he said.
Last year, nearly all cars stolen in Steamboat were recovered.
Kibler said the truck, with chrome rims, is worth $27,000, while an inverter inside used to power a portable oven is worth $500.
She continues to deliver burritos to work sites and businesses around Steamboat and said she made all of her deliveries Tuesday by using a borrowed car.
"I'm on top of it, but it's just like another bump in the road," Kibler said. "It didn't affect my business except I don't have my sexy truck to drive around."
A plumbing truck stolen a couple of weeks ago recently was recovered in a brushy area on Mount Werner, Rae said.
