Four people are facing criminal charges resulting from the Rapides Parish Sheriff's Office investigation of a string of all-terrain vehicle thefts in Pineville and Ball.
Since May 10, detectives have recovered nine stolen ATVs, a stolen motorcycle and a utility trailer.
The ATVs that have been recovered are possibly from the Tioga and Grant Parish areas.
Detectives said one suspect would receive stolen property, swap parts and strip down the ATVs to sell the parts or the entire vehicle without the buyer knowing the vehicle was stolen.
