In June 2013, a Van Buren County resident reported the theft of his 2006 John Deere 650 dozer at a job site off Highway 65, just north of Highway 16 East. Sheriff’s office investigators developed a suspect a few weeks in to the investigation that led to a Saline connection. On Oct. 9, investigators determined the location of the stolen dozer. The Arkansas State Police and the Saline County sheriff’s office assisted in the recovery effort. The investigation is ongoing with charges in Saline and Van Buren counties pending.
