PLAINVILLE — A Hartford man has been charged with stealing a vintage pickup truck in 2017. 

Jesus Perez, 39, of 49 Bonner St., was charged Wednesday with second-degree larceny. 

In July 2017, a man reported bringing his 1970 Chevrolet pickup truck to Perez in January to have it restored. When he went to retrieve the truck it was no longer there, according to Perez’s arrest warrant.  

On Feb. 5, 2018 a Department of Motor Vehicle inspector reported finding the truck in Plainville. Police determined another man with the truck bought it from Perez and returned it to the original owner.

Bond was set at $10,000 and Perez is scheduled to appear in Bristol Superior Court on March 18.
