A multi-state investigation into a stolen farm truck from Missouri led to the recovery of multiple stolen vehicles by the Mississippi Agricultural and Livestock Theft Bureau and the Claiborne County Sheriff’s Office.

In late August, a 2019 Ford F350 farm truck in Missouri was stolen in a fraudulent check scam before being transported to Mississippi. The Mississippi Agricultural & Livestock Theft Bureau located the truck in Hinds, Copiah, and Claiborne Counties after being contacted by Missouri law enforcement.

Several months later, the Claiborne County Sheriff’s Office received information about the truck’s location and was able to recover the vehicle from a wooded area. Additional locations were searched during the investigation, resulting in the discovery of other stolen vehicles.

The suspects in this ongoing case have not been arrested, as this is an open investigation involving multiple law enforcement agencies. According to officials, the incident appears to be a part of a theft ring operating across several states.

“This case is an example of state law enforcement working together with local law enforcement, even across state lines, to recover stolen property that farmers use daily as part of their livelihoods,” said Commissioner of Agriculture and Commerce Andy Gipson. “I want to thank Director Dean Barnard, Ag Theft investigators, and the Claiborne County Sheriff’s Office for their efforts in this open investigation. I encourage anyone who may have information that can assist with this or other cases to give us a call.”
