Brown County Sheriff’s Office deputies have investigated several theft and burglary complaints.
Deputy Harold Allgood was dispatched Saturday to a location near FM 583 and FM 2940 regarding the theft of gas meters.
Five Barton gas meters valued at $1,100 each were taken from four wells at the location. The two complainants said in order to retrieve the meters, the person(s) responsible would need to open several aluminum boxes, Allgood’s report states. The meters were in place the day before the theft occurred. The total value of the meters taken is $5,500.
In other incidents:
• A building on CR 411 sustained roughly $500 in damages when someone kicked in a door and stole canned food.
