Delaware State Police are investigating a recent string of thefts of all-terrain vehicles in Kent County. Willow Grove farmer Bill Morris discovered Monday that two ATVs had been taken from his garage. Felton residents tell WBOC-TV they've also been targeted.

Dealers say this is the season to both buy and steal the machines. ATVs can cost from $2,000 to more than $10,000. Dealers say stolen ATVs are either used or sold for parts.

Police aren't saying if the recent thefts are related. Some stolen ATVs have been recovered.
