The Fronto family says Tuesday began in typical fashion as they left for work in the morning, but that would soon change in the hours that followed on the grounds of their home in Pikeville.

“Some guys kept coming in and out of our driveway [and came] all the way back behind our house and tore the gate down, and actually hooked to our [ATV] and drug it out of here with their vehicle,” says Deano Fronto, owner of the ATV.

The entire incident was captured on privately installed security cameras, owned by a neighbor across the street.

“We got security footage of the car, the people [and] things of that nature. We got some great footage and hopefully that footage will lead to arrests and their merchandise back,” says Richard Slone, the neighbor who captured the footage.

The footage shows a blurry image of one of the individuals in question standing outside of a white car. About 2:30PM that person and an unseen driver pull into the Fronto's driveway, leaving with the ATV moments later. The physical damage can be measured in the thousands of dollars, but the Frontos say there are dealing with psychological injuries as well.

“It is devastating just thinking that you have something that expensive that you work hard every day to pay for, and it is just gone that quick,” says Jackie Fronto.

The Frontos say they have contacted troopers with Kentucky State Police who are currently investigating the matter.

The family is asking anyone with information to contact Kentucky State Police. They say they are offering a reward to anyone with information that leads to the recovery of their ATV.
