NICHOLVILLE -- The New York State Police in Massena are investigating the theft of a 1988-1990 model Kubota tractor from Nicholville in early December.
The tractor is orange and has a loader/bucket on the front. It has no model decals on the hood of the tractor and might have been re-painted. Troopers think the tractor may have been sold and delivered to an unsuspecting buyer.
Troopers have a suspect, or at least a suspect vehicle. They believe a white 2005 Nissan Titan pickup might have towed the tractor on a small white utility trailer with aluminum fenders. The trailer might have sustained a flat tire on the driver's side during transport on Dec. 5. The suspect may have purchased a used car tire and received assistance repairing the tire from an unknown, automotive repair shop employee.
If anyone has information on this case, they are urged to contact the New York State Police in Massena, Bureau of Criminal Investigations at 769-8406 (daytime) or 379-0012 (evenings and weekends).
