LETTERS: Undersheriff: Theft investigation is in progress
Marvin Barlow of Burdick said his tractor was stolen from a field south of the intersection of 340th Road and U.S. 56/77 in Marion County.
The tractor was a Ford 4000, probably from the mid-1970s, he said. Barlow said he had not heard from the sheriff’s department about the theft as of Tuesday.
Marion County Undersheriff David Huntley said Barlow reported the theft Aug. 5. A deputy did contact Barlow, he said, and went to the scene. By the time the deputy arrived, Barlow was gone, Huntley said. The investigation is incomplete but in progress.
Huntley requested Barlow’s phone number so he could contact him.
