Suspect sought in tractor theft

MERIDIAN —     Leake County law enforcement authorities are searching for a man who they believe may have stolen a tractor and trailer from a Leake County home.

    Leake County Sheriff's Department Investigator Clay McCombs said Wednesday afternoon he is circulating information and pictures of the alleged theft in order to find this person.

    "We believe he may be known in the East Mississippi areas of the state including Lauderdale County, and possibly even in West Alabama," McCombs said. "We want to spread this information as far and wide as possible so we can find this individual."

    McCombs said on Sunday the suspect made off with the green 2012 John Deere 5075E tractor that was on a 20-foot Big Tex flatbed trailer. McCombs said the theft occurred at about 7 p.m. at a home located just off Highway 35 in Leake County.

    The suspect is described as a white male and as shown in photos taken at the time of the alleged incident, was driving a dark gray Dodge Durango. No tag information was obtained by the surveillance camera.

    Anyone with information about the theft is asked to contact the Leake County Sheriff's Office at 601-267-7361 or the Central Mississippi Crime Stoppers at 601-355-TIPS (601-355-8477) with any information concerning the identity of the suspect or the location of the stolen tractor.
