Stolen Corvette Found After 3 years

Horton, MI - Three years after a 1964 Corvette was stolen, it is returned to its owner, and two suspects are charged. Jackson County Undersheriff Tom Finco tells News 10 the classic Corvette had been stored in a remote pole barn in Sandstone Township when it was stolen in November of 2005. Undersheriff Finco says he believes the suspects, Daniel Schuler and John Olivier, discovered the car in the barn and towed it away. Schuler stored the car in his garage for a time, then left it under a cover in his yard.
Authorities believe that earlier this year, Schuler had the car brought to a man in Horton to get it restored. In September, a Corvette collector, who knew the owner of the car, thought he recognized it parked in Horton. The authorities were notified, and after an investigation Schuler, 37, was arrested, and Olivier, 22, turned himself in to the court. Both men are free on bond, charged with larceny over $1,000 and breaking and entering an occupied building.
In another twist to the story, the stolen car was discovered within a mile of the business the Corvette owner ran.

    Danny should be in Judge Klaeren's court room on the 29th of January with Mr. White in his corner. This should be interesting.

    No, I am not danny's wife. (sorry to have the same name)no matter what, Danny has hurt many families in the area by starting a job and half way thru the job-asking for more money-that is his scam-he doesn't have a licenses anymore which is awesome but that will problemly not stop him. I wish everyone would read these comments and stay away from Danny Schuler- he has given the name Schuler a bad reputation-his father was in construction and did good work-too bad his son does not have the same morals. I beg everyone that thinks about having this guy work on his house to stop and find someone eles because he does not care about your family..it's only about the scam-I hope his wife Stacy feels proud of him and is reminded everytime she goes to work at the dentist office. (she is about worthless as him)

    First of all your grammar is improper, if you'd like to be technical. Run-on sentences, commas in the wrong position and missed capitilizations to name a few. People who live in glass houses shouldn't throw stones. That is a metaphor as you actually do not live in a glass house. Danny is guilty whether he towed or stored stolen property. Possession is 9/10 of the law my dear, too bad. You wish people to feel sorry for a criminal. He's a criminal not just in the sense of theft, but as a characteristic. Please do not make yourself look more pitiful by defending him. I'd rather spell wrong any day than be associated with someone as immoral and indecent as Dan Schuler.

    my reason for writing something is to not look as stupid as the last 3 comments of people who couldn't spell. Personally I'd love to see the real criminal in this, the one who actually towed the vehicle, get in trouble. That guy is the one who should be in trouble for stealing more stuff out of that barn more than just that corvette that he towed out of there. That is what doesn't make sense.

You'r lies and takeing from my family did not work!!!! And I'm sure it won't work this time either!!!

    Who's laughing now danny? So When you were being taken to court by two different couples for takeing their money and not finishing their homes.And had the nerve to call them a "CROOK". Well looks as if you were the Crook!!!!.This just proves carma will catch up with you. One more question for you danny who will you blame this on? It's always someone else's fault in you'r mind. I hope they let you rot in jail for all you have put people through!!!

    America's dumbest criminals should be all over this, funny, he deserves it after all the scandals he has pulled. I'm suprised his name isn't in the drug bust story also. I'm sure he'll miss the house he built with stolen money and supplies when he is rotting in jail.
