MANTECA, Calif. (AP) — A third suspect has been arrested on suspicion of stealing three Volkswagen minibuses that were customized to look like bright orange Tillamook cheese loafs.

KCRA-TV reports Michael Timothy Davy was taken in custody Wednesday at his home in San Joaquin County. It was unknown if he has retained an attorney.

The minibuses, worth $100,000 each, were stolen Saturday from a hotel parking lot in Manteca, where they had stopped on a tour promoting the Oregon-based Tillamook County Creamery Association's dairy products.

On Monday, investigators acting on a tip found the vehicles in a storage locker about 50 miles from Manteca. Shortly afterward, officers arrested Sacramento residents Brian Lancaster and Ryan Monaco. They were held for investigation of charges including auto theft and conspiracy.

The minibuses were found in their original condition.
