Camping World Truck Series driver Jennifer Jo Cobb reported her transporter was stolen last weekend.

According to a statement posted on Cobb’s Facebook page, the missing transporter disappeared from the team’s race shop in Mooresville, North Carolina.

The statement read:

On Saturday, May 11, 2013, at around 3:00 am, the Jennifer Jo Cobb Racing team transporter was stolen from the team’s race shop in Mooresville, NC. The value with the contents included is well over $250,000. Detective Carl Dangerfield is pursuing leads and has issued arrest warrants in connection with this case.

“It is my sole concern to get the transporter back so that we can make Friday night’s NASCAR Camping World Truck Series race at the Charlotte Motor Speedway,” said Cobb. “We are working with other teams right now to borrow the necessary items in the event our hauler and its contents are not returned. We are pleased with the diligent work that the Rowan County Sheriff’s Department has shown in solving this crime.”

According to the Rowan County Sheriff’s Department the arrest warrants were issued for Mike Harmon, a current Nationwide Series driver and team owner. Harmon has previously worked with Cobb.

While Harmon admits to having a business relationship with Cobb, he denied via Twitter any wrongdoing.

Charlotte TV station WBTV reported Wednesday night that Mike Harmon was out on bond after he was arrested and charged with stealing Jennifer Jo Cobb's hauler from a Rowan County business park.

WBTV reported that Harmon was arrested Wednesday afternoon, according to Cleveland County Sheriff's Office. He was charged with breaking and entering a motor vehicle and felony larceny.

He told the TV station: "I did not take her hauler. I've not been to her shop and how they convince the law to put a warrant out on me, I don't know.''

Harmon also pleaded his case on Twitter, writing:

"I want it known that I have never stolen so much as a piece of bubble gum in my life. I did not take JJC hauler, there is no video of me anywhere near her shop. Today she was the windshield & I was the bug, but when we get in FEDERAL court in a couple wks there's a boulder coming ."
