Sheriff’s Captain James Schueller said deputies were dispatched to the business in the 500 block of North Main St. in Stewartville around 6 p.m. Sunday. The suspects made off with a UTV worth over $26,000 from Podein’s Power Equipment.
Investigators have reviewed footage of the theft captured by security cameras at the dealership. Schueller said a black pick-up truck entered the lot and male exited the truck and began walking along the lot and examining vehicles in it.
