Police are looking for an $18,000 tractor that was stolen from a central Salina residence earlier this week.
Salina Police Captain Paul Forrester reported this morning that sometime between 3 p.m. Wednesday and 1:50 p.m. Thursday, someone stole a 2003 Farmtrack DTC 360 tractor from the driveway of a residence in the 100 block of E. Kirwin Avenue.
Duane Koelling, 73, of Lindsborg, had loaned the tractor to a friend to help with cleanup at a residence in the 100 block of E. Kirwin Avenue. When the friend, who had the key to the tractor, showed up to do some work on Thursday afternoon, the tractor was gone.
According to Forrester, the tractor was valued at $18,000 and a loader connection that also was stolen was valued at $500.
