Law Enforcement Investigating Center Pivot Vandalism

When the sun arose Saturday morning, Keith Heithoff found a sight no center pivot owner ever wants to see.
One of his center pivots had been vandalized in the preceding hours. The incident has been reported to the Antelope County Sheriff’s Department which is conducting an investigation.
Antelope County Sheriff Bob Moore said, “Sometime Friday night or early Saturday morning, somebody engaged the electric box and walked the center pivot into the power lines,” he said, noting substantial damage was done.
While no dollar amount has been determined yet, Sheriff Moore said it would likely run into the thousands of dollars.
The pivot which was vandalized was located approximately three miles east of Elgin.
Anyone with information about the vandalism is encouraged to contact the sheriff’s department.
