JOHNSON COUNTY, Ind. – The Johnson County Sheriff’s Office is asking for the public’s help to identify a person that stole a $350 piece of equipment from a home Sunday.

Deputies believe a man in a pickup truck stole a white rototiller from the home in the 1900 block of County Road 725 West around 1 p.m.

The victim says the rototiller is a Stihl MM55 Yard Boss, purchased from Dunn Hardware in Trafalgar.

The man and his pickup truck were captured on a surveillance camera on the victim’s property.

The suspect’s truck is believed to be a blue and grey Chevrolet extended cab, made in the late 90’s. The driver is described as a thin to medium build man of unknown age. He was wearing a ball cap at the time of the robbery.

The victim says the only possible suspect they can think of is a former neighbor. They say they have had problems with him in the past and he is no longer allowed on the property.

If you have information regarding this case, you can contact Detective James Bryant at 317-346-4618.
