An ATV and mini-bike were stolen from a detached garage in the 9700 block of Poorhouse Road in Port Tobacco during the overnight hours Dec. 3, the Charles County Sheriff's Office reported.
The owners heard what sounded like a motor starting near the garage around 12:50 a.m., but the vehicles — a blue 2009 Yamaha four-wheeled ATV and an orange and black 2008 KTM 65 SE bike — were gone by the time they made it outside.
An officer in the area saw the ATV around the time the call was dispatched, but as he turned his cruiser around to pursue, the driver drove into the woods.
Officers searched the area but did not find the thief.
Cpl. C. Long is investigating.
