Atascosa County Chief Deputy Sheriff David Soward said this week that his department needs the public’s help in the investigation of the theft of two 4-wheelers that occurred this weekend.
“The 4-wheelers are believed to have been stolen sometime Saturday night or Sunday morning,” Chief Deputy Soward said.
Deputy Chris Neeley was called out to the theft site off of Fuller Road, 3 miles northeast of Pleasanton. The owner told the deputy that the ATV’s were taken out of a barn.
Reported stolen were a camoflauge colored Honda GTX680 valued at $5,000 and a red Honda TRX350 valued at $2,000.
Sgt. Investigator Wayne Stratton has been assigned to conduct the followup investigation.
Chief Soward is asking that anyone who may have seen anything suspicious in the area of Fuller Road and the IH 37 access road on Saturday night or Sunday morning to call the sheriff’s office Criminal Investigative Division at 769-3434. Investigators believe that someone saw the 4-wheelers being hauled out of the area on a trailer and didn’t realize they were being stolen.
Soward also stated that Crime Stoppers would pay up to a $5,000 cash reward for information on the case that leads to the recovery of the ATVs or the identity of the thieves.
You can call Crime Stoppers at 769-2255 and you do not have to give your name.
