May 30th, 2012 by Ric Hanson

Authorities in Montgomery County are investigating recent incidents of thefts in the Red Oak and Stanton areas. Sheriff’s officials say they received two reports Tuesday. One of the incidents occurred sometime between Saturday and Monday, south of Red Oak. A white & yellow 2012 Cub Cadet GT-2100 lawn tractor and black 1995 H&H Dovetail trailer were reported stolen from Dickel Outdoor Power, just off of Highway 48. The trailer with Iowa license plate number 3544HB is valued at $3,000, while the lawn tractor was valued at $4,000.

The second incident occurred in the 500 block of Thorn Street, in Stanton. Officials say the victim reported someone removed two center caps off the rims of her 1999 Ford F-250 pickup truck, and damaged an aluminum door on the inside of her 2000 Kiefer-built horse trailer. The loss was estimated at $350 altogether.

Anyone with information about either of those crimes, is asked to contact the Montgomery County Sheriff’s Office at 712-623-5107, or Montgomery County Crimestoppers at 1-800-432-1001.
