A Summerville, Georgia woman reported the theft of an ATV to authorities recently.
The complainant told a responding deputy the green Polaris 500 had belonged to her deceased fiancée. The deputy checked the property for recent signs of the ATV – but, couldn’t find any clues.
The complainant told the deputy she’d get the VIN number and all paperwork to help identify the ATV. Later, the woman forwarded photos and more information to the deputy – who then entered the information in the statewide crime database. Chattooga County Sheriff Mark Schrader shared a picture of that four-wheeler adding “This four-wheeler was stolen from a man that just passed away – and it was possibly stolen while he was in the hospital. Any information provided will be appreciated; it can remain confidential.”
The incident remains under investigation.
