A JOHN DEERE GATOR SIDE-BY-SIDE OWNED BY THE MARTIN COUNTY, KENTUCKY REACT AND RESCUE SQUAD IS MISSING.
The Martin County Sheriff Department is asking for the public’s help in locating an all-terrain vehicle that belongs to the county’s emergency organization that has gone missing.
According to Martin County Sheriff John H. Kirk, the Martin County REACT and Rescue Squad has a John Deere Gator side-by-side, and it is believed to have been taken from a location along Route 3, near the Martin and Johnson county line on or around Thursday, September 17.
