Press Release for July 30th, 2019

The Pottawatomie County Sheriff’s Office is asking the public for information in a recent felony theft and damage to property case. Sometime between June 13, 2019 and July 13, 2019, unknown person or persons removed a hydraulic pump from a swather. The make of the swather is Frontier, and it is a pull type swather. The swather had been parked on a old farm site in the 23000 block of Oregon Trail Road, rural Belvue. The amount of loss  and damage to this equipment is estimated at 6000.00 dollars. The hydraulic pump on this Frontier swather is somewhat unique, and it is believe the suspect  likely took the pump to use on a similar piece of farm equipment. If you have any information on this crime, please contact the Pottawatomie County Sheriff’s  Office at 785-457-3353 or file a tip through our website,
