By West Kentucky Star Staff
GRAVES COUNTY - The Graves County Sheriff’s Office is investigating the theft of a grain bin unloading auger from a farm between Fancy Farm and the St. Denis community in Hickman County.

The actual theft occurred sometime this week on County Line Road, just south of Rule Shack Road in Graves County. Deputies say the suspects removed the GSI grain bin unloading auger with motor from a grain bin located on the victim's farm. The piece of equipment is valued at $3,000-$5,000.

On March 14, the same victim reported a theft from another farm he owns and operates in Hickman County off of KY 307. During that theft, deputies say the exact same piece of equipment was stolen from a grain bin there. That theft was reported to and is being investigated by Kentucky State Police.

Anyone with information about the thefts is urged to contact the Graves County Sheriff’s Office or Kentucky State Police.
