Reward Offered in Case of Stolen Tractor and Equipment
TSCRA Special Ranger Jimmy Dickson and local authorities are seeking information regarding the theft of farm and ranch equipment from a property near Eustace. Investigators believe this theft may be related to others in the Henderson County area.
Operation Cow Thief, an anti-theft initiative led by TSCRA, is offering a cash reward for information leading to the arrest and indictment of the person or persons responsible for the crime.
Sometime between Oct. 13 and Oct. 14, 2016, an unidentified suspect or suspects cut a gate lock to unlawfully enter a property located off Farm to Market Road 2709. A 2011 Massey Ferguson MF1529 tractor, lowboy trailer and Bosch miter saw were stolen. Oddly, the thieves also took food from a refrigerator, but left it in a nearby pasture.
The case is being investigated by the Henderson County Sheriff’s Department with the assistance of TSCRA’s special rangers. Anyone with further information leading to the recovery of the items or the arrest of a suspect or suspects should call TSCRA’s Operation Cow Thief hotline at (888) 830-2333 or Dickson at (903) 586-8733. All information is kept confidential and tips may be provided anonymously.
