NACOGDOCHES (KYTX) - Shortly before 9:00 am on Wednesday, November 13th, the Nacogdoches Police Department was called to T-Rex-S Outdoor Store on North Street in reference to a theft.
During the overnight hours, four side-by-side ATVs were stolen from the dealership. The thieves forced open a fenced area and drove the vehicles away. Officers were able to track the vehicles through an area behind the store and along the Union Pacific railroad tracks to a location near the Old Tyler Road, where the vehicles were apparently loaded onto a vehicle.
The stolen ATVs are three 2014 Polaris Razors and one 2013 Polaris Razor.
Detectives pursued active leads in this case all day and into the evening yesterday. This investigation has identified several suspects in this case. Arrest warrants have been obtained, and arrests are forthcoming.
NPD Detectives are still investigating this case in an effort to locate the stolen ATVs, and possibly identify more suspects.
