Police on the Burin Peninsula are investigating the thefts of three all-terrain vehicles over the weekend.

RCMP said two side-by-sides and a quad were found in near Marystown.

According to police, the ATVs were stolen from an Arctic Cat dealership some time late Friday or early Saturday.

Police said it looks as if the machines were taken on a joy ride, and were damaged in the process.

The investigation is ongoing.
