Tractor stolen, recovered

The Christian County Sheriff’s Department is investigating after a tractor was stolen on Quisenberry Lane and then recovered.

The John Deere 5105 belonging to Bradley Minton was stolen Saturday at a farm on Quisenberry.

Minton received word that the tractor was located on a rollback trailer on West Seventh Street and deputies found the vehicle and tractor. The driver said he had traded for the tractor from an individual in Hopkins County and produced text messages and a bill of sale to confirm his story.

The tractor was returned to Minton and the man who traded for it was referred to the Hopkins County Attorney’s Office.
