Police in Great Bend want to know why a trailer that killed a Hutchinson couple on a motorcycle came loose from the truck that was pulling it.
Authorities in central Kansas are sorting through at least $10,000 worth of stolen auto parts and equipment found at a property in Great Bend.
The Barton County Sheriff’s Office discovered the stockpile Monday while executing a search warrant.
Sheriff Brian Bellendir says the goods were stolen from Russell, Reno, Rush, Lincoln and Saline counties as well as Barton County. Officers from some of the other counties are helping with the investigation.
Among the stolen items are tires, wheels, motorcycles, all-terrain vehicles and engines. The sheriff says returning the goods to their owners could be difficult if the serial numbers have been removed.
No arrests had been made by Tuesday as the investigation continued.
