Mitchell Area Crime Stoppers is seeking the public's help in solving its Crime of the Week: a major theft from two local businesses.

At some point between 6 p.m. and 10 p.m. on Saturday, Nov. 13, two utility vehicles were stolen from C&B Operations — a 2022 John Deere Gator (4x2 Model TX) and a John Deere compact utility tractor. A skid loader was also stolen from Scott Supply.

The John Deere compact utility tractor and the skid loader have both been recovered, but as of Nov. 16, the 2022 John Deere Gator is still missing.

Those with information about this incident or suspicious activity in the area are encouraged to call Crime Stoppers at 605-996-1700. Callers do not have to identify themselves, and a cash reward is available for information that leads to the arrest of the subject or subjects involved.

A minimum of $250 is paid for rewards on all "Crime of the Weeks" solved through Crime Stoppers. Mitchell Area Crime Stoppers, Inc. offers this reward. Rewards will not be paid if crime tips, leading to an arrest, are not made directly to Mitchell Area Crime Stoppers, Inc. by telephone or by web tip.


To date, 353 crimes have been solved through information from Crime Stoppers.
