Stolen Van Painted in “Scooby-Doo” Theme Crashes into House
ST. PAUL -- St. Paul police had a mystery on their hands when a van painted as "The Mystery Machine" from the animated TV series "Scooby-Doo" crashed into a home.
Van owner Guy Frechette was sleeping about 3 a.m. Friday when officers knocked on his door. He learned his custom-painted van had been stolen from in front of his home.
Nobody was injured when the van hit the house, but the van sustained front-end damage. A police dog caught two suspects in a garage a block away. Police identified them but did not arrest them because they lacked proof.
Guy and Theresa Frechette say this is their third Mystery Machine, which is actually a fully loaded camper. They take it to parades and on their quest to visit all of Minnesota's state parks.
