Garfield County Sheriff's De-partment investigators are interviewing "several people" in relation to theft of a Komatsu 655 Dc-3 road grader taken Saturday from a construction site in Waynoka.



The $225,000 piece of construction equipment was taken from Litzenberger Construction southeast of Waynoka. The grader was parked on a county road in Woods County when it was taken, said owner David Litzenberger.



The grader, with a black cab and yellow body, was tracked through Woods County into Alfalfa and Garfield counties.



Litzenberger said he followed grader's tracks from the road where it was taken through three counties. He said the trail ended near Enid, south of Chisholm High School, at Oklahoma 45 and Oakwood.



Sheriff Bill Winchester said the grader was returned to Litzenber-ger after recovered near Enid Mot-or Speedway on Garfield County Fairgrounds Saturday. The grader was not damaged, officials said.



Winchester said if enough evidence was found, an arrest would be made and he would ask the Garfield County District Attorney's Office to file charges, most likely possession of stolen property.



Since the theft originated in Woods County, prosecutors there most likely would file charges with the heaviest penalties.
