Got sand?

Sure, but what good does it do when someone steals your $85,000 dune buggy?

Chandler police report today that on July 11, thieves broke into the yard at Automotive Diagnostic Specialties, 6835 West Chandler Boulevard, then loaded up a flashy Black Widow sand rail (the one in the pictures) onto a trailer and drove away in a silver, four-door Dodge pickup truck.


Cops have exhausted their initial leads and are hoping the public can help.

Good luck.

This thing was probably painted, disassembled, shipped to Mexico and is now being loaded with drugs for a cross-country border run.
