An investigation into an alleged Craigslist scheme involving stolen ATVs led to a big bust at the Triple S Wildlife Ranch in Calvin, Oklahoma. Authorities found stolen ATVs, tractors, drugs and illegal taxidermy.

Investigators were told the Triple S Wildlife Ranch was attempting to sell stolen ATVs. After searching the 3,000 acre property on Wednesday, authorities found several stolen ATVs, two stolen tractors, illegal taxidermy and narcotics used to sedate animals to make them look dead.

Several of the mounted animals are illegal in Oklahoma and a few are extinct.

The name of the owner of the ranch has not been released. Authorities say the owner will be facing a number of state and federal charges.
