The Saline County Sheriff’s Office is investigating after three all terrain vehicles were stolen over the weekend, in two separate burglaries. Sheriff Roger Soldan says two of the vehicles were destroyed by fire while the other is still missing.
Deputies were sent to 11513 S. Soderberg Road after a 2014 Polaris Ranger was found smoldering in a ditch on Saturday morning around 8am.
Sheriff Soldan tells KSAL News that the UTV was stolen from a property located at 11300 S. Soderberg Road and then crashed into a fence and electrical box at Smoky Hill Feeders.
