Baldwin Sheriff Looking for Stolen Racecar, Motorcycle

Two valuable antique vehicles were stolen Wednesday from a Baldwin County home. 

Capt. Brad King of the Baldwin Sheriff's Office says a blue 1968 Camaro racecar and a 1948 Harley Davidson were taken between 10:30 and 11:00 a.m. yesterday from a home on Snyder Road in east Baldwin County.

The Camero is valued at about $55,000 and the Harley Davidson at $20,000, King says.

"These are not vehicles you normally see on the road," King said.

King says neighbors heard what sounded like the car cranking up around that time, but he says they were more than likely loaded on a trailer.

Investigators processed the scene and are following leads, according to King.

Anyone with information is asked to call the Baldwin County Sheriff's Office at 478-445-5102.

FBI Investigating Carmike Bomb-Threat Suspect

The FBI says it knows who made bomb threats that cleared out Carmike Cinemas theatres last week -- but that person is no longer a threat.

In a statement released Thursday, FBI Special Agent Stephen Emmett said the investigation is still open and no details would be released. 

The release does not name the suspect.

By email, Emmet declined to comment further, including saying whether the suspect is in custody.

Carmike Cinemas released the following statement Thursday morning: "The FBI has identified the person responsible for the bomb threats that occurred last Friday, August 17, 2012 involving Carmike Cinemas and believes he is no longer a threat."

Last week, someone made a bomb threat to the Columbus, Ga-based national movie theater chain. Police searched various Carmike theaters, including ones in Dublin and Milledgeville, and found no evidence of significant threats.
