MERRILL, Wis. (WSAU) -  Investigators need your help to solve a Merrill area weekend theft. Someone took a 2006 Polaris ATV from a farm in the Town of Merrill on Highway K. The suspect is probably injured, because the ATV was found crashed at Highway K and Pope Road at 1:20 a.m. Sunday. The witness that called in the crashed ATV saw the suspect flee the scene towards a wooded area.

Lincoln County deputies have evidence the ATV may have been involved in another crash near Duginski Road

Investigators don’t know how the suspect started the machine, since the owners still had the key.

Anyone with information about this theft is encouraged to contact the Lincoln County Sheriff’s Office at 715-536-6272 or Crime Stoppers of Lincoln County at 715-536-3726. Callers to Crime Stoppers may remain anonymous and may qualify for a cash reward.
