Orofino police seek public’s help in ATV theft cases

Orofino Police Department (OPD) is asking for anyone with information about a recent ATV theft and another attempted ATV theft, both of which occurred on Riverside, to contact them at 208-476-5551.

“These types of thefts/attempted thefts are highly irregular in our community,” said Orofino Police Chief Jeff Wilson in a press release.

The first theft occurred June 25 at a residence on 118th Street. The ATV, described as a white 2009 Suzuki King Quad 750cc, was reportedly stolen from an open garage area.

The individual who reported the theft indicated that the keys had been left with the ATV at the time of the theft. At this time the ATV has not yet been recovered, and the case remains active.

The second theft occurred July 14 at a residence near 111th Street. The reporting party in this case indicated that the ATV’s ignition had been punched, but it appeared the suspect or suspects were unable to get the machine started, so it was not removed from the area.
Anyone with information about either incident may stop by OPD’s office at 217 First Street, or call 476-5551.

“We are also asking the public to immediately report any suspicious late night activity in our neighborhoods,” said Wilson.
