The Livingston County Sheriff’s Office is investigating a string of thefts in the northwest portion of the county. Deputies said two residents filed complaints with the department, as recently as Wednesday night, alleging that one or more individuals had stolen batteries from farm machinery and other heavy equipment on their property.
The sheriff’s office said they are working with adjoining counties because there have been similar crimes in those areas as well. Authorities are warning farmers or anyone with heavy equipment to take precaution. No arrests have been made.
