Fairbanks-Based Troopers Seek Two in Multiple Four-Wheeler Thefts

Alaska State Troopers are seeking two Fairbanks men in connection with multiple ATV thefts located in an investigation that commenced after two ATVs were reported stolen from a Fairbanks property by the owner on Saturday.

After the 8:50 am call-in to troopers on Saturday, the Alaska State Troopers Burglary Suppression and Property Recovery Unit opened an investigation in an effort to locate a Suzuki Quadrunner 400 and a Honda Rancher 400 stolen from the property.

Their investigation soon led them to a residence on Aeronca Drive. While on the property, investigators quickly found the Suzuki Quadrunner four-wheeler. Looking further, they would also locate a second stolen Suzuki.

The investigation would continue late into the night. The search proved fruitful and the Honda was located hidden in the woods near the Aeronca Drive residence.[xyz-ihs snippet=”Adsense-responsive”]Investigators are interested in speaking to 19-year-old Elijah Evans and 27-year-old Travis Olin in connection with the multiple thefts. A further check into Evans’s background would find that he is the subject of an active $10,000 arrest warrant for a previous vehicle theft.

Troopers are asking the public to please contact the Alaska State Troopers at 907-451-5100 with information regarding this incident or the location of Elijah Evans or Travis Olin.
