CHANDLER, AZ (3TV/CBS 5) -- Three suspected ATV bandits thought they got away scot-free in Chandler. They did everything in their power to go undetected.

They walked in from a neighbors lawn and quietly rolled out the quad to avoid the door cameras. But they didn't realize when they rolled the ATV around the corner, they stopped right smack in front of some pretty high tech cameras.

[WATCH: Thieves steal ATV]

The video showed a white pickup truck and a red ATV rolling into the frame. Then it showed three people, including a woman, lift the ATV on the back of the pickup. One of the cameras caught the license plate, but it turns out the pickup truck was also stolen.

Stanley Roberts spoke to the victim who says the ATV had just been renovated and it had sentimental value. They just want it back!

Hopefully at least one of them will enjoy a slipped disk for a good long time. That ATV is 600 pounds.

Hispanics doing what they do best


Typical racist. Here's what white people do best.


Why didn't they bring a ramp or something? Or more people? Sentimental value - really?

Obviously they're not members of "organized" crime.


"Debbie says the ATV has sentimental value." How Arizona.
