Law enforcement seeking public’s help recovering stolen ATV

A $1,000 reward has been promised to any individuals who may have the identity of a pair of thieves who stole a land-locked ATV earlier in the month.

According to Investigator Scott Cheek of the Rabun County Sheriff’s Department, on April 6th a green and black single-bench ranger ATV was taken from East Wildcat Road in Clarksville around 7 p.m.

According to Cheek, the ATV was stolen after the owner’s kids who were driving it, managed to get it stuck on the shoulder of the road and left it to get help.

Onlookers mentioned to authorities that two trucks left the scene with the ATV in tow.

One description is a late 1990’s Ford Ranger, being white in color with a strip of blue molding on the side. The other is a ford ranger with red lettering on the tailgate.

According to Cheek, the thieves are believed to reside in the Habersham area.

The $1,000 reward will be provided to any members of the public who are able to provide any details on the whereabouts of the ATV or the persons responsible.

If you have any information, please call Investigator Cheek at (706) 960-9857.
