GARDEN CITY, Idaho — A tip about a stolen Camaro being offered for sale in Garden City led to the arrest of a Post Falls man on burglary, theft and drug charges.

The Camaro, one of two stolen from David King’s condominium in Post Falls last month, was recovered with little damage.

A car collector in Garden City called King on Friday after he was shown a 1967 Chevy Camaro Rally Sport that was being offered for sale for $27,500. The buyer, knowing it was worth much more, did some research and found photos on the Internet indicating the car was stolen.

Police in Garden City asked the collector to meet with the seller Saturday. Officers arrested 48-year-old Anthony Bauer of Post Falls. King says Bauer worked on both of his Camaros about five years ago.
