DURANT, Okla. -- The manager of family-owned Texoma Utility Equipment says someone stole 11 Kubota utility vehicles and a Kubota four-wheel-driver tractor sometime between Saturday night and Sunday. That equipment is valued at $142,000.

Police found three different footprints and several tire tracks near the gate the thieves forced entry to steal the equipment.

Managers believe this burglary is part of a bigger operation.

"It took so much manpower. This had to been a part of a larger operation," Texoma Utility Equipment manager Kyle Richardson says.

So far no suspects have been named.

We'll have more on this massive theft as the investigation continues.

    Duh, it's a big operation. You have to be pro's in order to move that much equipment in so little time. These guys knew what they were doing and they knew where to go and what roads to take to make a clean getaway obviously. I mean, NOBODY SAW ANYTHING!!!

    There was a large theft like this of 14 kubota tractors in Ardmore about 20 years ago...probably the same people.

    To Teri from Idabel: I remember when the Durant PD looked like a bunch of junkyard dogs and their bite was the same. Idabel officers could look just as cool if they could afford the shades. By the way, the word is "too."

    "Busted through?" Is that a technical term?
