Thieves Steal Farm Equipment in Dallas Co.
From the West Alabama Newsroom–
More than $60,000 dollars worth of farm equipment is stolen from a Dallas County farm.
Sheriff Mike Granthum says the theft happened about a week ago at the JB Hain Company in Sardis.
Two camouflage Gators — two ATVs — and a dump trailer were among the property that was stolen.
Granthum says the suspects are now — likely trying to sell the items. So he’s warning area residents — against buying stolen goods.
“We just want you to cover yourself. And we don’t want to hear the excuse that I didn’t know it was stolen. Cause if you buy something for $300 dollars and it’s worth $5000, yeah you know in the back of your mind that you’re getting too good of a deal and it’s stolen. You’re going to be held just as liable as the person that stole it.”
Anyone with information that could help investigators — or suspects that you may have already bought an item that may have been stolen — call the sheriff’s department at (334) 874-2530.
