The Webster Parish Sheriff’s Office was contacted earlier this month about a theft of a Polaris ATV that took place at Muddy Bottoms involving Donald Klick, 19, of Serepta and Leonard Tilley, 19, of Springhill.
Deputies drove out to make contact with the ATV owner at Muddy Bottoms’ security office. While looking into the theft of the first ATV, “(the Deputy) was contacted about a second ATV that was stolen as well,” read the booking report.
“Park security was notified of a description of both ATVs. Both owners stated that they wanted to press charges.”
It was discovered that park security had observed Kilck and Tilley, “get off of the stolen Honda at the eating pavilion and get into a white Chevrolet truck.”
Security followed them out of the park and saw it stopped at the intersection of Highway 802 and Walnut Road. “(The Deputy) observed an ice chest in the back of the truck belonging to the owners of the Polaris,” read the report.
There was an additional passenger in the car, but they simply filled out a written statement saying they observed the two on the ATVs. Klick and Tilley were advised of their rights and taken into questioning.
“The Polaris was found to be badly damaged and left in a mudhole. The Honda was missing a set of speakers and the lightbar was damaged,” read the report.
“Both Klick and Tilley were uncooperative and denied knowing about the ATVs.”
Both subjects were transported to the BDCC and booked on the charges of unauthorized use of a movable and criminal damage to property.
