Deputies recover more than $80,000 in stolen equipment

Corsicana — Sheriff’s Deputies recovered $82,930 in construction equipment Thursday afternoon when they responded to a call about suspicious activity off NWCR 1170 just off Highway 22 near Corsicana.

“The officers saw a trailer stuck in the mud with additional equipment around the location,” explained Sheriff Elmer Tanner. “They checked the serial numbers and found numerous items were stolen.”

Among the items recovered were two flatbed trailers, a Case 445 Skidsteer (front-end loader); an orange NPK hydraulic hammer, and two white and green Kent hydraulic hammers. The hammers alone were estimated to be worth $45,000.

Detectives are still trying to determine who stole the items, and how they ended up stuck in the mud in Northwest Navarro County.

Sheriff’s deputies also responded to the following incidents:

• Thieves stole a stainless steel refrigerator, microwave and stove, as well as the breaker box from a home Monday on SWCR 4290 near Union High. The estimated value of the items stolen was set at $2,100.

• A 10 foot Bix Tex Black dump trailer worth $3,000 was stolen Monday from a farm on SECR 2230 near Corsicana.

• A sewing machine was taken from a building on Monday just off CR 3320 near Corsicana.

• An ATV with “Yeti” in blue letters on the front fenders, an Echo chainsaw, and a five-gallon plastic gas can worth a combined $1,719 were stolen Monday from a building on SWCR 2397 near Wortham.

• Two tires were damaged Sunday while the vehicle was parked on North McKinney in Rice.

• Thieves with an inclination towards music stole a Yamaha keyboard, a Peavey amp, speakers, and a CD player. They damaged a door breaking into the building Saturday in Kerens. Total value of the stolen and damaged goods was set at $700.

• A brown and white goat was found running loose Friday on SECR 3050 near Mildred.

• Thieves stole a tall pink lamp with flowers on it and an air compressor when they broke into a home Friday on West Third in Purdon. The air compressor was later recovered. The lamp remains at large.

• One person was arrested in an alleged case of family violence and assault between a husband and wife around 4 p.m. Saturday on SECR 1090 near Corsicana.

  • 3-26-14 Expo Commercial heifers.jpg Curl wins first leg of Commercial Heifers

    Caleb Curl, 13, of Frost FFA, won grand champion of the commercial heifer show, the first leg of the commercial heifer overall prizes. Unlike a lot of the other animal categories, commercial heifers aren't show-things with smooth coats and stardust on their hooves. They're straight out of the pasture, a bit muddy and certainly not the lady-like, pampered creatures that will be led around the ring in the registered heifer show.

  • 11-21-13 Annie.jpg ‘Annie Get Your Gun’ through Sunday at the Palace

    It’s the big musical, the one that makes me think of ‘cast of thousands,’ or in our case, dozens at least, and it’s here only for a few short days. ‘Annie Get Your Gun,’ is Irving Berlin’s candy box treasure of a play about Annie Oakley, the sharpshooter in love with a showman.
    It’s presented by the Warehouse Living Arts Center but because of its size is on stage at the Palace Theatre. Shows will be at 7:30 p.m. tonight, Friday and Saturday, with a 2 p.m. Sunday matinee.
