According to Cleveland Police Department detective Steve Ross, Robert Lee reported his Bobcat 320 had been stolen.
Investigators learned of a suspect and have made an arrest.
According to Ross, Mark Rymer, 38, was arrested and charged with theft over $10,000.
“The Bobcat skid steer has some distinct markings and we believe it is still in the area of Bradley County,” said Ross.
Investigators allege Rymer has likely “hidden” the piece of equipment.
“Mr. Lee is offering a significant reward for the return, or information leading to the return of his property,” Ross said.
Anyone having information can contact Ross at 728-7311 and follow the voice prompts to connect with Cleveland Police Department.
