At least two ATVs have been stolen in North Iowa this month, according to law enforcement.
The Floyd County Sheriff’s Department in a Facebook post Saturday asked for the public’s help in locating one of the vehicles.
According to the department, a 2007 blue Honda Rubicon was stolen from the 1800 block of Cameo Road between Rockford and Nora Springs. It was reportedly taken from a farm residence sometime on Jan. 16.
“We have a possible suspect but the ATV hasn't been found yet,” Deputy Josh Patrie said.
Anyone with information should contact the Floyd County Sheriff’s Office and or their local agency, because sometimes items like these can change hands quickly for cash, Patrie said. The Floyd County Sheriff's Office can be reached at 641-228-1821 or firstname.lastname@example.org.
Cerro Gordo County Sheriff Kevin Pals said one ATV was reported stolen Wednesday from Mason City Power Sports.
The ATV is a blue 2014 Polaris Ranger XP900EPS-LE. Its value is estimated at $13,000.
The department has not made any arrests and doesn't have any suspects, according to Pals.
“I wish there was a trick to not have these thefts,” Pals said. “The best advice is to have the vehicles stored inside a building with no keys in them.”
Pals said with this most recent theft, the keys were not in the vehicle.
“I have not seen a recent trend with the thefts,” Pals said. “Most years when we have snow we see an increase of snowmobile thefts.”
