WEST POINT, Miss. (WTVA) - A business in West Point is missing over $50,000 worth of equipment, which was stolen last week. 

Adventure ATV says they are missing a trailer, plus Can Am and Polaris 4-wheelers. 

Owner Sonny Jameson says the unlucky thing is the video surveillance wasn’t recording at the time.

This is the third time in nine months thieves have stolen from Adventure ATV, this time taking two 4-wheelers and a red trailer.

“I got there the next morning and I noticed my trailer gone but didn’t think anything of it because we loan it out some," Jameson said. "Through the day we realized we were missing one unit and the next day we found our second unit missing.”

The owner tells WTVA the theft happened between about 9:30 at night and 1 the next morning.

Jameson says luckily for the thieves their surveillance video was not rolling.

“Oddly enough the cameras weren’t recording," said the business owner. "They hadn’t been recording for about 10 days or so. It was an awful amount of luck on the part of the thieves not to have the cameras working.”

If the camera were rolling, it might’ve caught the perpetrators unhooking the trailer from the ATV truck and busting the lock open.
Police are cautioning business owners around the holidays.

“This time of year, these type of incidents happen often, said Police Chief Avery Cook. "We would ask business owners do a check of your security systems and make sure your businesses are secure.”

If you have information about this theft, you’re asked to call West Point Police at 662-494-1244.
