Two trucks were stolen from the Adair County Highway Department, apparently on Friday night-Saturday morning, March 15-16, 2013. Adair County Road Superintendent Jobe Darnell said that the theft was discovered when crews came to work this morning.

The two trucks were a 1999 Dodge, which was returned, badly damaged. "It must not have suited them," Mr. Darnell said.

Adair County Judge Ann Melton asked that citizens help with the recovery of the other truck. It was one of the best trucks in the fleet, she said. Supt. Darnell said that the truck is a 2006 Chevrolet Diesel Club Cab. "Somebody will probably find it hung up in a mud hole," he added and gave the county ID number for the truck as "No. 18." Information for Deputy Bray can be called in to The Adair County Sheriff's Office, the Adair Annex, 424 Public Square, Columbia, KY, at 270-384-2776.
