Medina County, Texas – Texas and Southwestern Cattle Raisers Association (TSCRA) Special Ranger Robin Clark and Medina County Sheriff’s Department authorities are seeking information leading to the arrest or indictment of a suspect or suspects involved in the theft of two Kawasaki ATVs from a ranch located in Medina and Uvalde Counties.
One stolen ATV is a camouflage colored 4010 TRANS 4X4 HD Utility Vehicle with the serial number of JK1AFCS179B501182. The other is a green colored 2005 Kawasaki KAF620-J1 with a serial number of JK1AFCJ115B503487. They were stolen from a storage container located in the middle of the ranch in Medina County. Authorities found the doors open with the lock missing on the storage container and the ATVs missing. Chains and locks on two different gates accessing the ranch were also left open by the suspect(s).
It had rained since the theft occurred, so a timeframe of the theft couldn’t be determined.
