Christmas thief nets two ATV's

By Wainwright Jeffers - bio | email

MOULTRIE, GA (WALB) – A thief spent part of his Christmas stealing ATV's. The holiday heist at DeMott Tractor Company in Moultrie left them minus two new 4-wheelers worth more than $5,300.

The person stole a Polaris Outlaw 90 and Polaris Sportsman 90 model.

Now that business is turning to the public and working with the Sheriff's Office to find the person or persons responsible.

"It happened sometime around 11 to 12 on Christmas night they cut a part of the fence where we keep the ATV's then they rolled them around the fence and through a ditch," said Seth DeMott, DeMott Tractor Company.

Service Manager Doug Strickland said they've called Polaris dealers from Macon to Tallahassee to be on the lookout for the stolen vehicles.

"If you see these two units they'll have something in the key hole so that it'll still crank," said Strickland.

If you've seen the Polaris Youth ATV's with missing starting components, call the Colquitt County Sheriff's office.

DeMott Tractor Company is offering a cash reward for the person who helps them find the 4-wheelers.
