After manager Tyson Bliss locked up and left work Friday night, he said someone broke onto the Country Equipment property in Tuttle and stole four utility task vehicles (UTV).

“They cut the gate and got four vehicles out of the gate and pushed them next door to where they had a truck and trailer waiting,” he said.

He said he thinks whoever did this had experience with this kind of thing. They took $50,000 worth of Polaris Rangers; three green ones and a red one.

“It’s getting old,” he explained.

This was the second time in the last few months a Country Equipment has been hit, Bliss told News 9.

“Thanksgiving this year they got about a $70,000 tractor out.”

And if it doesn't stop, he said Country Equipment could be out of insurance options.

“You can only hit the insurance button so many times before they pull the plug,” Bliss said.

He found out Saturday the business’s surveillance cameras hadn't been rolling since the ice storm messed them up over the holidays. So the criminals were not caught on camera.

But Bliss said law enforcement is on the lookout. And if the people who took the UTV’s plan on getting it titled, the VIN will let the tag office know it's stolen.

In the meantime, they hope you'll watch out for their side by sides, and come forward with any information.

“Just make a phone call because that’s all it takes,” Bliss said.

If you are able to help police catch those responsible, Country Equipment is offering a $1,000 reward.

Anyone with information is asked to call Tuttle police at (405) 381-4467.
