Crime Stoppers Alert: Two men steal ATV from north Tulsa store

TULSA - On a weekday afternoon in July, two men showed up at a north Tulsa motor sports store looking for an ATV, with no intention of buying it.

Their only intention? To steal it.

"They were very brazen to do that in the middle of the day," said Chris Combs, president of Action Power Sports.

Surveillance video from that day shows the men looking over the ATV, which was parked in back of Action Power Sports.

One of them even tried lifting it up to gauge its weight.

"Anybody could have walked out on them at anytime," said Combs.

But no one did.

After briefly leaving, the men returned a few minutes later. One of them hot-wired the ignition and drove off in the ATV.

"As you can imagine I was very upset.  It's hard to watch your hard earned stuff walk out the back door without being paid for," said Combs.

A few days later, police found the ATV in a field in Sapulpa without a scratch on it.  

And it's now back in the Action Sports showroom. But still no sign of the suspects.

"We just ask that if anyone recognizes these individuals to please call Crime Stoppers," said Jill Roberson of the Tulsa Police Department.

The search goes on for two men who wanted a joy ride, without having to pay for it.

"I want to see them put to justice," said Combs.

If you know anything about this crime call Crime Stoppers at 918-596-cops. You can remain anonymous.

Crime Stoppers does not want your name, just your information!

Tips could result in a reward of up to $1,500.
