WEST CHESTER, PA — The Chester County District Attorney’s Office announced that Ivan Nunez-Hurtado, 20 years of age of Coatesville, was found guilty by a jury of theft of a motor vehicle, receiving stolen property, conspiracy, and related offenses for stealing an ATV impounded at the City of Coatesville Impound Lot. A witness contacted Coatesville Police after observing the defendant and a juvenile co-defendant stealing the ATV. The defendant will be sentenced at a later date.
DA Deb Ryan said, “Were it not for the witness, this case might not have been solved so quickly. That’s what community is all about, people watching out for each other to keep their neighborhood safe. Property theft is not a victimless crime – it affects everyone who lives and works in that community.”
Authorities state that on May 19, 2020, Coatesville City Police were called to Martin Luther King Boulevard in Coatesville for the report of suspicious activity. A witness reported seeing two males pushing a black Honda 400EX ATV out of the City of Coatesville Impound Lot. Police located the ATV a block away and took the defendant and his juvenile co-defendant into custody.
Coatesville City Police investigated. Assisted District Attorneys Dan Yarnall and Doug Rintoul were the prosecutors.
