Warrants for the arrest of three men wanted in connection with the theft of ATVís 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 ATVís 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 ATVís 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 ATVís 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 ATVís. 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 Zamoraís 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 ATVís 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 ATVís 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 ATVís from M&M in 2001. He also provided a link to the buyer of the stolen property, identified as the ďFat GuyĒ Adrian Abdul Prado in Homestead, Florida. Prado is believed to have sold two ATVís belonging to M&M earlier this year to a man in Fort Lauderdale for $16,000. In the first warrant, Sanchez, Zamora and Marin are charged with eight counts of Theft of Motor Vehicle related to the thefts in 2001. In the second warrant, they face another 18 counts of Theft of Motor Vehicle and one count of Criminal Damage to Property from the incident in January. Bail on each warrant has been pre-set at $100,000.
