Theft Increases

The saying goes “desperate times call for desperate measures,” and this economic downward spiral has made an impact on agriculture theft.
Missouri Governor Jay Nixon has created the Livestock and Farm Protection Task Force to deal with the large increase in theft of animals, machinery and motor vehicles. Over the past three years 1,300 cases were reported and highway patrol recovered $2.1 million worth of goods.
To prevent future problems Nixon has compiled a group of 10 criminal investigators, two criminal analysts and a part-time administrator. The task force will work alongside local law enforcement and is funded by $3.4 million from the American Recovery and Reinvestment Act.
