DYERSBURG, Tenn. (AP) - Dyer County Sheriff's deputies are investigating extensive vandalism at a farm.
Farmer Brad Studdard was checking on his land June 29 when he found expensive farm machinery had been used to damage crops.
The State Gazette reported Studdard found a tractor had been driven around in a field and was stuck in mud. A planter implement attached to the tractor had been damaged.
Studdard also found someone had taken a crop sprayer for a joyride in the field, damaging crops,
Costs were still being assessed, but investigators said the planter frame was bent and it would cost an estimated $20,000 to replace it.
The sheriff's office is seeking public help at (731) 285-TIPS.
