Cops: Two utility vehicles stolen; one later found in woods

Two utility vehicles were stolen from a lawn equipment company in Calverton Wednesday night, Riverhead Town police said.

Police said someone cut through a chain-link fence at Lacorte Farm and Lawn Equipment on Edwards Avenue sometime before 7:40 a.m. Thursday and took the two vehicles — one worth $12,000 and the other worth $10,000.

One of the John Deere “Gator” utility vehicles was later found in a “heavily wooded area” on a trail across the street from the company, according to the police report.

Police said surveillance video will be turned over to detectives investigating the theft.
