450 lb. pig gone, TN sheriff looking for stout thief

KINGSPORT, Tenn. (AP) -

Whoever has Arthur Olterman's pig is either very inventive or very strong.

Olterman called the Hawkins County Sheriff's Office to report the white pig had been taken from its pen at a neighbor's house near Kingsport - all 450 pounds of it.

A deputy's report stated property owner Mary Keys wasn't available for him to interview on Monday, according to the Kingsport Times-News.

However, deputy Lyndon Williams saw where someone had cleared a path through some brush to get access to the pig. How they got it into a vehicle is cause for conjecture.

The porker is valued at about $350. Anyone who knows where the pig is or anything about its disappearance should call the Hawkins County sheriff.
