FRANKLIN COUNTY, Ala. – (WHNT) Detectives believe crimes in two separate counties may be connected.

Russellville Police say a man stole an ATV in Walker County, then tried to sell the stolen four-wheeler in Franklin County.

According to detectives, a man stole a Polaris Ranger special edition, Browning model.

Police say the suspect rented a spot on the side of Highway 43 to advertise the Ranger.

However, when officers were notified the ATV was stolen, the four-wheeler was already gone.

Police believe the four-wheeler is still in North Alabama, but worry an unsuspecting victim bought the stolen merchandise.

This week's Shoals Area Most Wanted comes from the Russellville Police Department.
