Thefts, break-in, investigated in Atchison Co

Editor's note: A release from Atchison County Sheriff Jack Laurie states that it was later learned the tractor was taken as a repossession, and was not a theft.

(KAIR)--The theft of a tractor, from the Nortonville area, leads to an investigation by the Atchison County Sheriff’s Office.

According to a release from Atchison County Sheriff Jack Laurie, the 1973 John Deere 4430 tractor was reported stolen early Monday evening.

The tractor, according to Laurie, was “stolen from a shop building located at 10087 242nd Road, in Nortonville.”

Laurie describes the tractor as having a cab and a chrome exhaust pipe, adding that “it is believed to have been loaded onto a silver Dodge rollback type tow truck and to have traveled east on [Highway] 116 from Johnson Road.” It’s believed the rollback truck had writing on the doors.

The investigation is ongoing.

In a separate investigation, the Atchison County Sheriff’s Office is working to learn who broke into the old school building located in Huron.

According to Laurie, the school building sustained damage to a window, a door lock, and a fire extinguisher.

The crime, reported Monday, is believed to have happened sometime between 5:00 Saturday evening and 5:00 Monday evening.

The investigation is continuing.

The Sheriff’s Office is also investigating the theft of three stop signs, and one metal sign post at the intersections of Cheyenne Road and Clay Road, along 254th Road, in rural Atchison County.

Investigators believe the thefts occurred at some unknown time over the past weekend.

Anyone with information about any of the investigations are asked to notify the Atchison County Sheriff’s Office at 913 804-6080.
