Employee’s 4-wheeler stolen from Westover Lawn and Garden

ALBANY, GA (WALB) - Chris Shelley was shocked when he came into work and found out his prized Honda four wheeler that he was trying to sell was stolen.

"One of the employees asked me did I sell it and I said no, and I went around the building and checked for it, it was gone," says owner Chris Shelley.

Shelley says he put about two thousand dollars of upgrades into it, including exhaust and new brakes. Only the thieves didn't get the keys. They had to carry it.

"We found that the fence was cut open and pulled back and they took it out the fence and one of our employees walked where it looked like the four wheeler went," says Shelley.

He could believe they got away with it.

"They were determined," he says.

Westover Lawn and Garden is equipped with surveillance but it didn't show any faces.

"The camera not pointing out there far enough to where it can be seen and it was done at night so it would be hard to see them anyway," says Shelley.

Now Shelley is hoping someone will spot his four wheeler. He says the crooks would have to replace the key switch if they plan on driving it.
