Fillmore County District Court: Warrants issued for ATV thefts in Rushford


Thu, Jul 3rd, 2003
Posted in Features

Warrants for the arrest of three men wanted in connection with the theft of ATVs and other vehicles in five states were issued in Fillmore County District Court on June 27.

Juan Carlo Sanchez, 47; Abel Carcasco Zamora, 51; and Lazaro Seara Marin, 26; no know addresses, are wanted in the theft of ATVs from M&M Lawn & Leisure in Rushford in late December 2001, as well as in January 2003. The warrants follow an extensive investigation carried out by Rushford Police Chief Sam Stensgard.

In the criminal complaint it is alleged that the three men stole 6 ATVs valued at more than $38,000 from M&M Lawn & Leisure on December 28, 2001.

In addition, the men are believed to have stolen a pickup truck and Feather Lite trailer valued at $36,000 from Darr Auction & Realty in Rushford. The truck and trailer were later recovered at a parking lot in Faribault.

On January 6, 2003, 16 ATVs valued at more than $100,000 were stolen from M&M Lawn & Leisure. Surveillance cameras were helpful in identifying the activities of the three men as they used a forklift to load the ATVs. An enclosed 40 foot trailer was also stolen. Rushford Police Officer John Kulas was able to identify the registration of a suspicious vehicle in the area in the early morning hours. This led to the Albert Lea Police Department being contacted. Sanchez and Zamoras names later surfaced when a truck stolen from Dade County, Florida was recovered in Albert Lea.

On January 24, 2003, a Polaris dealership in Mobile, Alabama contacted M&M to report that ATVs with serial numbers linked to those stolen in Rushford were being sold near Pensacola, Florida.

On May 15, Stensgard interviewed Quesado Reinaldo in Albert Lea who had information about a series of thefts. Reinaldo said that he had helped unload ATVs into U-Hauls in Albert Lea earlier in the year. He identified Sanchez, Zamora and Marin as the three men he had helped.

Reinaldo linked the three men to thefts in Minnesota, Iowa, South Dakota, Wisconsin and Colorado as well as to the thefts of ATVs from M&M in 2001. He also provided a link to the buyer of the stolen property, identified as the Fat Guy Adrian Abdul Prado in Homestead, Florida.

Prado is believed to have sold two ATVs belonging to M&M earlier this year to a man in Fort Lauderdale for $16,000.
