New York rapper Fabolous has shared more details about his tour van being stolen earlier this month and explained its condition upon discovery.

According to Fab, the vehicle was stripped down of its valuables when police found it.

"I had shows in D.C. this weekend. One of the turtle-top vans wound up getting stolen," he revealed. "I don't know how, even the police were mind-boggled by it because it was parked right next to the Secret Service building. They found it though. It was stripped down like a Magic City dancer. It happens. I didn't know people really go hard and steal cars like that. I think I tweeted, like, 'Yo, do people really still steal cars?' I thought that was something that kinda like fell off. What are you gonna do with a car after you steal it? Joyride? But I guess you can get some parts. But a turtle-top? You're taking a big-ass van. Hopefully, it helped somebody out in their time of need." (MTV)

On Tuesday (August 10), Fab broke the news to his Twitter followers.

"In other news.. My turtletop van was stolen in DC this weekend.. They informed me they found it 2day.. Ppl still steal cars?? #WhoDoesThat," Fab tweeted Tuesday (August 10).
"I mean, if u wanted to ride in the Turtletop Van, jus ask... I woulda said No.. But thats the better way 2 go about it...LOL." (Fabolous' Twitter)

Last month, Fab lost his rhyme-filled BlackBerry phone at a New Jersey restaurant.

Fabolous is still putting the finishing touches on his upcoming album, "There Is No Competition 2: The Grieving Music," but he almost lost some of his rhymes at Morton's Steakhouse in Hackensack, NJ, the other night. The rapper paid more attention to his BlackBerry than his meal, but forgot the phone when he left. (New York Post)

However, a restaurant employee noticed Fab's phone and returned it to him.

Fortunately, a sharp server noticed the phone on the table and caught Fab in the parking lot as he was about to pull out. The rapper was noticeably relieved, thanking the employee repeatedly. (The Boom Box)
