DENISON, Iowa — The Crawford County Sheriff's Office is investigating a string of motor vehicle thefts last week.
Sheriff James Steinkuehler said Tuesday that his office had suspects and that he believed that arrests would be made soon.
Stolen late Thursday were three Ford F-250 pickup trucks from Cogdill Farm Supply in Dow City and two pickups from the Ronald Beermann residence in Arion — a red 2009 Dodge Ram and a white 2006 Chevrolet pickup.
At 6:30 a.m. Friday, a 1936 two-door coupe owned by Mike Krajicek of Denison was reported stolen.
Four of the pickups have been recovered. All three F-250s were recovered Friday, and Beermann's Chevrolet pickup was recovered early Saturday.
Steinkuehler said law enforcement officers believe that the thieves got into the building where Beermann's pickups were parked by ramming an overhead door.
Krajicek said his red 1936 Pontiac coupe was stolen from a storage building at his brother's home across the street from Krajicek's business, Quality Truck Service.
He said surveillance cameras recorded a pickup truck backing through a roll-up door and the coupe being driven through another door.
Steinkuehler said surveillance cameras showed two of the stolen pickups near the Krajicek building.
Anyone who has information about the thefts is asked to contact the Crawford County Sheriff's Office at 712-263-2146. A $500 reward is being offered.
