Routine patrol yields stolen toilet soapbox racer
By The Associated Press
SEATTLE, Wash. — It was just a routine patrol until a King County sheriff's deputy lifted a tarp and found a soapbox derby racer built to look like a giant toilet.
A giant, stolen toilet -- measuring about 7 feet high and 7 feet long.
The massive commode -- white with a blue velour seat and tank cover and a red flush handle -- was found Wednesday in a rural area of southeast King County.
Sheriff's Sgt. John Urquhart said the toilet facsimile was built by five friends in Colorado Springs, Colo., and was brought to Seattle late last month for a race. It was stolen out of the back of a truck, which was also stolen.
Urquhart says the truck has not been found.
