The owner of five stolen vehicles is offering a $10,000 reward for information on the people who stole them.

The crime happened overnight Wednesday along a quiet stretch of North River Road in Alva. He didn’t realize until Friday morning the thieves had cut a hole in his fence to get to them.

The victim, Tanner Hatch, shared these pictures of the five vehicles now missing.

Hatch said his wife called him Wednesday morning to tell him the golf cart was missing. She was planning to take their newborn son for a ride on it, as she does every morning.

He said he wants his stuff back, and he wants the people who targeted him and his family to be caught. He is offering a cash reward, if it leads to the people responsible getting arrested and his vehicles.

“I would guess that it was probably a team of horrible people that came and did what they did,” Hatch said, “and it’s unfortunate. We absolutely love Alva. We love the community, the residents and everything, and it doesn’t seem to be something that people would expect out here. Hopefully we can we can find these people and put them behind bars where they belong.”
