A $50,000 reward is being offered for the arrest and conviction of a farm equipment vandal whose actions are hurting a farmland management business in Fredericktown. Movers and Shuckers at 19325 Zolman Road has had two incidents of vandalism. The more recent was last month at the Swihart farm at State Route 13 and Bangorville Road in Bellville, with another incident last year. Chief Administrative Officer Shanda Thompson says a combine, tractor, and grain cart were targeted. Hydraulic oil was poured over the air filter in the combine, ruining the filters. The wiring harnesses were ripped-out of the header-height control computers, the windhsield washer tank was ripped-off, and the hopper bottom of the grain cart had been opened allowing the grain to spill onto the ground. The latest damage took an entire day to repair, so the business hopes the hefty reward will bring in some solid leads. If you have information about the farm equipment vandalism you can call Movers and Shuckers at 740-263-2164 or the Richland County Sheriff's office at 419-774-5678.
