Easter was a lot different for a ton of people this year because the majority of our plans were changed due to the coronavirus pandemic.
However, for UFC reporter Laura Sanko, it was the robbery of farm equipment from her home that made this Easter one not to forget.
“If people follow me on Instagram, they probably know I live on a farm — technically a ranch because we only have cattle,” Sanko said on What the Heck (via Mike Heck of MMA Fighting). “We have 150 acres here, but what’s unique about it is I don’t actually live in the country. Out one window, I can see the golf course that’s connected to the country club, there’s a neighborhood right next to us, and another neighborhood on the other side. But we have this big chunk of farm land, so we have farm equipment. We have 35 head of cattle and we do that whole thing, so it is a working farm in that respect. We woke up Easter morning and a big piece of farm equipment had been stolen. It was our Polaris Ranger, and a bunch of tools had been stolen,” Sanko continued. “It was like $20,000 worth of stuff.”
None of Sanko’s family or animals were harmed after the robbery of their farm this past Easter Day.
Sanko says that the crooks have not been apprehended as of this writing, but her husband and the others in their neighborhood are still on the hunt.
“They are (still on the loose)” Sanko said. “My husband was so annoyed about it and he’s got too much time on his hands, as does a lot of people, so we canvased the neighborhood that leads to the direction we know that they left. So we have a lot of people’s Ring camera footage of them tearing down the street. We know what vehicle they arrived in. We know what time (they came), and we know they were canvassing our neighborhood, and the other neighborhoods around us for other stuff. Unfortunately, a lot of Ring cameras don’t have high enough resolution where you could get a license plate, or the right angle to get a license plate. So we know what kind of car it was, but we don’t know exactly who they are. They have not been apprehended.”
The UFC reporter is expected to be back on TV again at UFC 249, which is set for Saturday, May 9.
