Thief targets John Deere Utility Vehicle in New Jersey Business

A John Deere Gator Utility Vehicle was reportedly stolen from a business in Winslow Township earlier this month, and now police are working to recover the green machine, New Jersey Online reports.

According to the media outlet, the vehicle was allegedly lifted at about 2 a.m. on November 4 from a Norris Sales property, located on Cross Keys Road. Now, police say the suspect, who was dressed in all black clothing, was last seen traveling on Johnson Road toward Monroe Township.

Authorities believe the man stole the vehicle by cutting a hole in the fence surrounding the business' premises, and then drove the gator out. Reports show the man either hot wired the vehicle, or owned a John Deere utility vehicle key.

With a high resale value and known reliability and longevity, John Deere Gators have been the target of thieves across the country. The vehicles have been proven to be useful in a wide range of purposes, and can be found on New York City construction work sites as well as fence post repair operations in Wyoming, according to the company's website.
