Log Splitter, Trailer Stolen

The Saline County Sheriff’s Office is investigating the theft of a homemade log splitter from a rural property in the 200 block of S. East Street.

Lt. Sean Kochanowski tells KSAL News that the owner had been asked to move his log splitter, trailer and wood stove from the property.

When Jeffrey Oehlert came to move the equipment in late October it was already gone.

He told investigators he spent some time checking local junk yards and pawn shops to see if he could locate the items before contacting the Saline County Sheriff’s Office.

Loss is listed at $3,000.
