ATV theft in Lincoln investigated

- LINCOLN COUNTY SHERIFF’S OFFICE
Lincoln County sheriff’s detectives said surveillance video showed three suspects taking an ATV from an Iron Station dealership earlier this month.

Lincoln County sheriff’s detectives are working to determine who took an ATV from a dealership in Iron Station earlier this month.

The theft took place in the early-morning hours of July 13, deputies said, from Al Lane’s Kawasaki on N.C. 27 East. Investigators said the thieves broke through a fence around 2:30 a.m. and took an orange-and-gray 2014 Kubota RTV valued at $13,000. A second vehicle had been pushed into a nearby field but was recovered, deputies said.

Investigators said a security camera at a nearby business recorded a small white car pulling behind a neighboring service station, then leaving the scene. About 20 minutes later, the same car returned and was followed by a U-Haul cab-over type of truck.

Detectives said they think three people were involved in the theft.

Anyone with information in the case is asked to contact the sheriff’s office at 704-732-9050 or Crime Stoppers, 704-736-8909.
