CAIRO — Police are on the lookout for a vehicle and utility trailer they say was stolen from a local elected official.

Keith Moye, chair of the Grady County Board of Commissioners, said an unknown thief took his silver 2009 Chevy Silverado 2500 Duramax and the attached utility trailer from his 16th Avenue NE shop sometime Monday night.

A time-stamped photograph from a trail camera at Moye’s shop captured an unknown suspect walking around the vehicle, which is uninsured against theft, at 10:51 p.m. Monday. Police are now looking for the individual seen in the picture.

Moye, who did not know the vehicle was missing until Tuesday morning, said he was unsure who could have committed the crime.

“If I had a clue, I’d be at their door,” he said.

In addition to the vehicle, which is valued at $16,000, the thief also made off with tools, lawncare equipment, electronics and $500 in cash. Among the valuables inside the vehicle was a 9mm handgun, a Dewalt tool set, a diamond-plated toolbox, an HP laptop and an Ozark Trail cooler. The trailer itself is valued at $4,500.

“Everything that I use to make my living with is inside the truck,” said Moye, who mainly cleans up foreclosed properties for Fannie Mae.

In all, the thief is believed to have made off with an estimated $30,650 worth of equipment.

Moye said he will pay a reward to anyone who comes forward with information that results in the arrest and conviction of the thief.

Anyone who has seen the vehicle or has information on the theft is urged to contact 911.
