MOULTRIE (WALB) - A Moultrie business owner hopes surveillance video will lead to his stolen tractor and the thief who swiped.

Around one o'clock Saturday morning , cameras captured a heavy duty truck hauling a flat bed truck park at a business next to Hall's Homes, a mobile home dealer on Veterans Parkway.

The driver cut through a barbed wire fence and hot wired a 2009 John Deer Tractor with a bush hog on the back.

He drove the tractor onto the flat bed across the street and took off around 3 AM.

The owners are offering a $5,000 reward for information leading to an arrest and conviction.

The truck appears to be Ford F-250 or 350 dual King Cab.

The tractor is a 2009 John Deere 5103 worth about $20,000.

If you have any information call Moultrie Police at 890-5500.
