What the Hay?

web posted August 20, 2014

JOHNSTON   It is that time of year where hay cutting is still well underway. It's hard work, dusty and itchy work, as acre after acre of hay is cut, lined, then bailed. The final phase of harvesting hay is loading the bails left laying in the field to be stored for later use or to be sold. When workers arrived at a field on Rachel Road  to load the bails, many were missing.

As the number of the bails continued to climb the Edgefield County Sheriff's Office was called to report the theft. When a deputy arrived the total number of hay bails missing had been placed at 200, with a value of at least $1,000. A total number of bails left behind was not listed in an incident report of the theft.

The deputy was unable to locate any tire tracks or evidence of how the hay was taken.

The hay bails would have to be properly stacked and then strapped down before hauling on a roadway. The theft was said to have taken place between Noon the previous day and 8 am on the morning of the report.

The case has been turned over to the Sheriff's Criminal Investigative Division for further investigation. No further information was available.
