HARTWELL, Ohio (WKRC) - A Northern Kentucky store owner tracked down a thief on Wednesday, but police still need help making an arrest.

Bruce Lagroy owns Northern Kentucky Motor Sports.

He says that between Monday night and Tuesday morning someone stole 13 vehicles from his Alexandria store.

Lagroy says he got a tip that someone stored them at an auto shop on Galbraith Road in Hartwell.

So, he went there.

"We got a tip off Facebook that somebody had seen our stuff so we came over and looked around and I walked up on the railroad tracks and looked in the back of this building and I saw one of my side-by-sides being loaded on a trailer. And inside the garage was more of my stuff," said Lagroy

Lagroy said that there was a short chase, but the suspects got away.

He says he's missing four utility vehicles, four quads and four bikes totaling $100,000.
