Weld Sheriff’s Office warning residents about uptick in motor vehicle thefts

Posted on 04/17/2020

The Weld County Sheriff’s Office is warning the public about an increase in motor vehicle thefts and asking residents to be on the lookout for suspicious activity.

The sheriff’s office has received reports of motor vehicle and all-terrain vehicle thefts south of Weld County Road 22 between U.S. 85 and Interstate 76. The most active section of the area is northeast of the Aristocrat Ranchettes subdivision and west of Weld 39.

The thefts are generally taking place at night and from storage locations. The sheriff’s office is asking the public for assistance by reporting suspicious activity, getting good descriptions of persons and vehicles without endangering themselves, noting a license plate if possible, and ensuring their property is secure.

Several ATVs also have been stolen from a storage lot in the 4000 block of Camelot Circle in Longmont. On several dates in February and March, an unknown person or persons stole five ATVs and three trailers from that location.

Evidence suggests the suspects scouted the lot several days prior to the thefts. They also used different vehicles to tow away the ATVs and trailers. The suspect vehicles include a possible 2010-2014 black Jeep Cherokee Limited, a possible maroon 2003-2004 Lincoln Town Car and a possible 2010-2014 maroon GMC diesel pickup with a 4x4 sticker on the back side of the bed.

Anyone with information about the suspect vehicles or similar cases is asked to contact Deputy Mathew Rosten at (970) 400-2875 or mrosten@weldgov.com.
