Polk Co. deputies search for man in photo after tractor is stolen

POLK COUNTY, Fla. (WFLA) — The Polk County Sheriff’s Office is looking to speak with a man after a tractor was stolen from an auto center.

On Friday morning a dark blue 2012 Peterbilt Tractor was stolen from the Tire Choice Auto Center in Dundee.

The thief disconnected the truck from the trailer, exited north in the truck, did a U-Turn and then headed south on Highway 27.

Deputies are looking to speak with the man in the photo with the gold or tan SUV. The vehicle may be a 2000-2006 GMC Yukon or 1999-2001 Cadillac Escalade.

The man pictured was at the auto center on Thursday and deputies say he appeared to be trying to distract an employee who was working on the truck, and looked as though he was checking the truck out.

Deputies believe he may be involved in the theft.
