In January, Deandre Marquese Hale, 28, was arrested by the Montgomery County Sherriff’s Office and charged with “Fugitive From Justice” and he U.S. Marshal’s Service arrested Darius Demichael Pitts, 26, on a Felony Theft charge. Kenneth Kieuntrel Jordan, 27, was arrested in December on a Federal Firearms charge.

The three were the first arrests made in relation to the case.

Ag-Pro had three gators and three zero turn lawnmowers stolen off its property. Surveillance cameras picked up at least six men cutting the gate to enter the back lot of the property. They drove a four-door white Chevrolet and a single cab Dodge flatbed truck pulling a trailer in to load the equipment and leave.

The gators were estimated at roughly $15,000 each and the gators cost $10,000 each. Footage also showed them making away with a 2009 white extended cab Chevrolet delivery truck.

Bainbridge Public Safety Investigators have been working in conjunction with the Dothan Police Department to identify all suspects connected to the thefts. Additional arrests are expected.
