Thieves targeting ATVs and trailers around the county

By JAMIE PATTERSON,

A rash of trailer and four-wheeler thefts have hit Yazoo County over the last month.

Terry Gann, chief investigator with the Yazoo County Sheriff’s Department, said there have been seven reports over the last four months.

“It’s that time of year again, and we have started seeing a rash of trailers and four-wheelers being stolen,” Gann said. “We are asking that everyone keep an eye out for any suspicious vehicles in your area, and report it to us if you see one.”

Gann said the thefts were first being reported in the Benton area, with three trailers being stolen. But he said the incidents began to spread out throughout the county.

To report suspicious vehicles or people in your area, call the sheriff’s department at 746-5611.
