Detectives seek information on stolen bobcat

Detectives need information about a Bobcat stolen earlier this month from a construction site at the Bahia Honda Bridge.

The Bobcat, valued at $24,500, was reported stolen March 2nd from inside a fenced area where it was stored with other construction equipment. Evidence indicated suspects cut the wire ties on a fence, drove the Bobcat out of the fenced area and then loaded it onto a truck.

Detective Sheila Seago is assigned to investigate. She says the Bobcat has one unusual feature that someone might recall if they saw it, or that may help to identify it. It has a U-shaped piece of channel iron welded to the back end, on the right hand side.

Anyone with information about this crime should contact the Sheriff’s Office at 305-292-7060. Callers may also contact Crime Stoppers of the Florida Keys. Tipsters can remain anonymous and, if a tip leads to an arrest in the case, the caller would be eligible for a cash reward. The Crime Stoppers hot line number is 1-800-346-TIPS. Tips may also be submitted on line at or via a text message to 274637 using the keyword TIP136.
