A Colorado man has been sentenced to three years in a community corrections program for stealing a Sno-Cat fitted out to look like the “General Lee,” the famous car featured in the classic television series “The Dukes of Hazzard.”

Jason Cuervo, of Grand Junction, was sentenced Tuesday after previously pleading guilty to aggravated motor vehicle theft.

The 28-year-old, who has an extensive criminal history, stole the Sno-Cat and its trailer on March 11, 2018, in Minturn. Authorities say Cuervo hitched it to the back of his pickup and hauled it to Grand Junction.

The Sno-Cat was recovered after a woman followed it and called the sheriff’s office because she was curious why it was being towed by a small pickup.
