Police in McPherson are on the lookout for thieves who stole equipment valued at 52-thousand dollars from the town's John Deere store.
The thieves stole lawn tractors, mowers and a company vehicle.
McPherson County Deputy Travis Hawkinson says the pickup and
lawn equipment were parked in the business' back lot.
Evidence indicates the thieves hot-wired the pickup, hooked on
the trailer and backed it up to a loading dock. The mowers then
were started, driven to the dock and loaded on the trailer.
