Someone stole the ATV from the city’s Fourth of July festival at 11:45 p.m. Thursday at Schilberg Park, according to a news release from the police department. The vehicle belongs to Captains Corner, the festival’s caterer, said Sgt. John Conger with the Milton Police Department.

Police later found the abandoned ATV with minimal damage, but only after the thieves took it through a cornfield.

The department arrested a passenger, Robert McNutt, 23, of 3431 N. Tarrant Road, Milton, but it has been unable to identify the driver. McNutt was arrested on charges of being a passenger in a stolen vehicle and criminal damage, party to a crime.

The police have an idea of who drove the ATV, but so far no one has been willing to name the person, Conger said.

Milton police are working with CrimeStoppers to offer a cash reward if someone comes forward with information that leads to an arrest, he said. does not condone or review every comment. Read more in our Commenter Policy Agreement
