The Barry County Sheriff’s Office is looking into a rash of thefts in the Shell Knob area in the last month.
Sheriff Mick Epperly reports three different businesses had their central air conditioning units stolen, including a five ton and a two-and-a-half ton unit. In addition, thieves are cutting catalytic converters out of cars. Sheriff Epperly says he believes the thieves are stealing the items so they can sell the scrap. Anyone with information on these thefts should call the Barry County Sheriff’s office.
