KSP Investigates Livingston Equipment Theft
By West Kentucky Star Staff
LIVINGSTON COUNTY - Kentucky State Police are seeking information related to an overnight equipment theft in Livingston County.

Troopers were called to a Smithland farm on Saturday, due to the theft of a white Bobcat track loader, model T750. The piece of equipment was allegedly stolen during the early morning hours Saturday.

While investigating the theft of the loader, troopers were alerted to a theft of a trailer from a Smithland business. The trailer is described as a 16 foot wood-bottom dovetail trailer. A similar trailer with blown out tires was found abandoned by troopers near the sight of the thefts. It is believed that this trailer was used to steal the piece of equipment, but due to its weight the trailer failed and was abandoned, prompting the theft of the trailer in Smithland.
Surveillance footage shows a full-size pickup truck hauling the equipment traveling east on Tiline Road. The truck could possibly be a dual-wheel vehicle with running lights on the top of the cab and back fenders.
Anyone with information regarding the thefts are encouraged to contact Kentucky State Police Post 1 at (270)-856-3721.
