It seems as if a rash of thefts have run throughout Marshall County. Bethany Goates is a resident of Madill and came home from work to a sad surprise. On August 31, Goates returned home after work to find that their 2020 Honda CBR 500R was stolen from their home.
They approximate the time of the theft to be around 10:00 a.m.
Goates said people were in the area at the time of the theft, but there were not enough red flags to make them think something was awry.
“We have two family members that drove by and saw a truck and trailer parked next to our house, which [the neighboring house] is empty,” Goates said. “So, they just thought they were working on that house.”
After Goates took to Facebook to post a request to keep an eye out for the motorcycle, a poster commented and said they saw the motorcycle on Hwy 199.
Goates said that not only does she feel violated, she is worried it might be somebody they know – or at least, somebody who has been watching the house to learn their patterns.
“We worked so hard to save up for it and someone does this,” Goates said. “I think they knew we were both working at the same time, so they were either watching our house or unfortunately, it’s someone we know. You don’t really see it from the street unless you’re looking for it.”
Melissa T. commented on Goates Facebook post to sympathize with Goates.
“One of my other friends sons bike was stolen a couple weeks ago and they found it in Konawa. Wonder if it’s the same people.”
