Police ask for tips in railroad tie, diesel fuel thefts in Mt. Vernon
The Mitchell Department of Public Safety is asking the public to help find whoever stole 15 heavy duty railroad ties and 800 gallons of diesel fuel near Mt. Vernon.
Between July 20-23 15 heavy duty oak rail road timber crossing pieces were stolen by the elevator in Mt. Vernon, according to a news release from the Mitchell Department of Public safety. The timbers are very heavy and would need several people or a skid loader to be moved.
