RICH SQUARE – The Rich Square Police Department is not immune to being a victim of crime.

According to information provided by Rich Square Police Chief A.B. Roye, someone broke into the Police Annex storage building on Short Street on March 29 and stole the police department’s 1989 Yamaha Kodiak 4-wheeler.

Roye said the 4-wheeler was green with gold rims and had blue and red emergency lights on it.

“Criminals in this area are notorious for stealing 4-wheelers and we as a public safety agency are not immune,” Roye said.

Roye added that the 4-wheeler was jointly owned by the federal government, which in turn does make this a federal crime and will be investigated as such.

“We are doing everything we can to apprehend the thief. Surveillance video from the building is being processed and should help show who committed this crime,” Roye stated.

Those with information on this case are asked to contact the Rich Square Police Department at 252-539-2136, Northampton County communications at 252-574-1041 or Northampton County Crime Stoppers at 252-574-1110.

A reward is offered for anyone who assists in the recovery of the 4-wheeler and apprehension of the thief.
