POST FALLS, Idaho-- Investigators have found a rare stolen Chevy Camaro almost 450 miles from where it was taken. Two muscle cars were stolen in May from a garage in Post Falls, Idaho.
   
We're told one of the Camaros turned up in Southern Idaho and one of the alleged thieves knew the cars owner.

Benny Balberamma makes a living restoring cars. One of his achievements was helping owner David King bring these two '67 Camaros back to life before they were stolen.

Benny recently found out the black Camaro was found near meridian Idaho by Boise. “I can sleep again I know the car is not being town apart I know its not being sold for pieces it’s basically unscratched.”

Investigators say Tony Bauer, Sara Cornett, and Travis Quiring stole the cars. They were busted over the weekend for allegedly trying to sell the black one in southern Idaho.

Benny says Bauer use to work for him and worked on both of the Camaros in the past.

Bauer is accused of trying to sell the black Camaro for about $27,000. It’s valued at about $65,000. We're told that's when a potential buyer knew something wasn't right and did some digging and found out the car was stolen.

The alleged thieves are also part of a theft investigation in southern Idaho.
