Tractor GPS thefts on the rise in Grant County

Print Article

GRANT COUNTY — Thefts involving farm tractor GPS equipment is on the rise around Grant County.

The Grant County Sheriff’s Office says deputies have taken reports of $90,000 in losses of GPS equipment from unattended farm tractors around the county. GPS equipment on farm tractors is “easy for a thief to remove,” says the sheriff’s office, and can go for good money when sold to people “trafficking stolen property.”

As a result, deputies are encouraging farmers to take extra precautions to deter the thefts from occurring.

If you have any information about the thefts contact the Grant County Sheriff’s Office at 509-762-1160 or via email at crimetips@grantcountywa.gov. Tipsters can remain anonymous.
