BOSSIER PARISH, LA (KSLA) -

Three Bossier Parish men are accused of stealing then trying to sell an all-terrain vehicle.

The Yamaha Kodiak 400 that was found in woods in Plain Dealing is one of three ATVs stolen in the area in late March, authorities say.

Now Bossier sheriff's detectives are trying to figure out who took the other two four-wheelers.

The ATVs were stolen from two residences on Louisiana Highway 157 just north of Louisiana Highway 2, the sheriff's office reports.

On Good Friday, sheriff's deputies uncovered the Yamaha Kodiak 400 worth about $2,000. 

Another 4-wheeler was recovered the next day in the Benton area. 

The other ATV still is missing.

Two brothers and another Plain Dealing man are being held in Bossier Maximum-Security Facility at Plain Dealing in connection with the theft of the Yamaha Kodiak 400.

Brothers Camus M. Johnson, 21, and Jarvis D. Johnson, 18, live in the 800 block of Daniels Street in Plain Dealing.

Authorities say that is one street over from where the ATV was found April 14.

The brothers reportedly admitted to detectives that they knew the 4-wheeler they were trying to sell had been stolen.

Also arrested was 19-year-old Thomas M. Gay, who reportedly confessed to authorities that he stole that ATV.

The Johnson brothers were booked shortly after 1 p.m. April 14. 

Each is charged with one count of illegal possession of stolen things for allegedly attempting to sell the stolen four-wheeler. 

Bond has been set at $2,500 each.

About two hours later, Gay was booked on one count of felony theft. His bond has been set at $10,000.

This was the second time within a week that Gay, of the 300 block of North Calhoun Street in Plain Dealing, was in the Bossier lockup.

Plain Dealing police booked him about midday April 7 on one count each of simple robbery, simple battery and resisting an officer. 

He was free on bonds totaling $17,000 when he was arrested in connection with the ATV theft.

Authorities urge anyone with any information about missing or stolen ATVS to call the sheriff’s office at (318) 965-2203 or Bossier Crime Stoppers at (318) 424-4100.
