Fellow OHV enthusiasts I am writing to ask your help in locating my ATV as described below. While in Tucson on September 19th it my 2006 Chevy truck with the ATV in the bed was stolen from the parking lot of Pastiche at 3025 N. Campbell. The truck has been located in Mexico but the ATV remains missing. The ATV is a limited edition and there are not very many of them around, especially if it still has any of the distinctive items on it.


There is a reward of $100 for information leading to its recovery. A stolen vehicle report #1209200017 is on file with the Tucson police 520-791-4444. Pease report any information to your local law enforcement and/or the Tucson Police.

Attached is a full description and picture of my ride. Please help me by passing this description on to as many clubs and people as you can especially in the Tucson and southern AZ region, to be on the lookout and help me recover my ride.

I thank you for your assistance in this matter!! Just possibly, together we can locate my ATV and bring to justice the perpetrator(s) of this crime!


Peace..............later...............bob

So did you recover the truck? the atv will likely be parted out. My 2005 BF 750 was stolen in 2007, God help them if I ever find who took it.

I'm guessing its not insured then?
Sorry for your loss. I graduated from UofA in Tucson and my Dad lives out there now. This unfortunately happens often. My guess is and from experience is that your quad was the target and its being used by a Mexican citizen. I have heard of many instances of Mexican officials actually being in possession of stolen property when the rare instances of the property being found or located. Thats right the freakin Policia... Seeing the type of ATV it is I'm sure it's a very desirable model for what they need and desire farm work fun etc. Unfortunately the police in Mexico will be of no help. If your die hard to locate it go to the town/city they found your truck in and keep an eye out. I dont really recommend this, its not like the police will give a ****** much help.... Unless you paid them a few bucks to do so...
Unfortunate lesson but everyone really needs to insure their stuff for reasons like this.
You could try to push the issue with the property owner of the lot it was stolen from but I'm sure they will try to claim no responsibility since they don't want their premiums to go up.
Try your insurance company since it was actually in the truck bed... Or even your homeowners insurance. Doubt it will work but worth looking into.
4x4's and ATV's are big time targets in border towns. They really like vehicles that are not the newest models ( difficult to work on and parts are too expensive) they may have left your truck to " cool" off but knew you would not have any tracking capabilities on the ATV... IMO. So it's likely in that area the truck was found.
What condition was the truck in? Do you have to take it back ? Or does your insurance allow you to take a cash settlement under the premise that it could have been used for other criminal activity or high potential for abuse? Not sure if the later is a viable claim but have heard of the " claus" on the criminal activity part.
Good luck hope I'm wrong.

No word on my truck other than it is in Mexico, confiscated with 4 other vehicles by the Mexican authorities. The insurance company, GEICO, has not indicated if they will get the truck back or pay me for it. So my saga continues.........:sad:

ATVs make nice efficient low profile transportation for drug mules..They aren't being stolen for recreation. Stolen machines are not traceable to those using them to move drugs into the US and it beats the hell out of walking. If you line in a Southern border town..better nail your ATVs down.

Sorry for your loss.

Flipping Pisses me off!!! The border war is still a problem even after sb1070. Lets all take a moment and give thanks to the officer that lost his life last night and left his wife and children behind due to some scum bag drug runners. Thank you sir for protecting our border. You paid the ultimate price for my protection.
