MARIANNA, Fla. (WJHG/WECP) - A window was broken and a go-kart stolen at a residence on Lafayette Street in Marianna on Sunday.

The Marianna Police Department says the suspect used a spool of wire to shatter the window and then found their prize - a Manco brand go-kart.

Officials say the suspect pulled the go-kart out of the opening in the window and then pushed it down Dekle Street towards the railroad tracks, then behind Ray's Garage. They say the suspect crossed Penn Avenue and traveled west down the railroad tracks and finally through a wooded trail that leads to Edgewood Drive.

The go-cart is blue and white with slick, racing-style tires, a fiberglass race car body, and a 5hp Briggs and Stratton motor. It also has "Ford" written across the front.

Anyone with information on the suspect or the go-kart is asked to contact the Marianna Police Department at 850-526-3125.
