Police ask for tips in railroad tie, diesel fuel thefts in Mt. Vernon

Posted: Updated:

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.

Mitchell Public Safety also noted, on June 25 someone stole 800 gallons of diesel fuel from a train locomotive—also stopped near the elevator in Mt. Vernon.

Mitchell Public Safety said if you have any information regarding suspicious activity in the area, or information related to the crime, call Crime Stoppers at 996-1700. A cash reward is available if a tip leads to the arrest of the subject or subjects involved.
