Gibson Co. deputies seek leads in ATV, equipment thefts
GIBSON COUNTY, Tenn. — Deputies are looking for leads in a string of ATV and equipment thefts involving tens of thousands of dollars worth of property. “There’s a rash of these not just around Gibson County, but also the surrounding counties, of equipment being taken. They’re moving them at night it seems to be,” says Gibson County Chief Deputy Danny Lewis.
On Sunday, a 2014 Honda Foreman ATV was reported stolen from a residence in the 30 block of Harold Davidson Road in Trenton, according to a release from the Gibson County Sheriff’s Office.
Deputies responded Monday to an address in the 200 block of State Route 186 South in Humboldt for the reported thefts of a late-model Honda Recon ATV and a 5×8 utility trailer with a dove tail and load gate.
Shortly after taking the above report, deputies were dispatched to Gibson County resident, Keri Coleman’s home to take a report on a stolen 2012 John Deere model 35D excavator valued at $38,000 along with a 7×20 equipment trailer, according to the release.
Coleman says no one in her home noticed anything strange during the burglary. “We didn’t hear anything my daughter said she heard something she got up and looked out the window and she didn’t see anything.”
Anyone with information in any of the thefts is urged to call the sheriff’s office at 731-855-1121. The sheriff’s office also wants to remind residents to report any suspicious activity or vehicles.
