Rochester, MN (KROC AM News) - The Olmsted County Sheriff’s Office is looking for the thief of  a farm tractor who drove it from one end of the county to the other, a distance of about 30 miles.

The John Deere tractor was stolen sometime Friday from a residence in the area of North Highway 63 and County Rd 21, several miles north of Rochester. It was found the next day parked in a field drive near Chatfield with a shredded tire.

A large mower was attached to the tractor and the overall value of the equipment was put at $90,000.
