Johnson County sheriff recovers 22 bags of stolen grass seed

Here’s a statement from the Johnson County sheriff about recovering 22 bags of stolen prairie grass seed. That’s good news but it makes you wonder who stole it and why? Did they think it was grass seed for their lawn? But that’s a pretty big lawn:

Grass seed stolen from the roadside at 159th St. and I-35 was recovered on Saturday May 17. A Park Ranger with the Kansas Department of Wildlife and Parks located the seed at Hillsdale Lake, while on routine patrol. All 22 unopened bags of Konza Prairie Grass Seed was recovered.

Detectives continue to search for the suspects in this case and encourage anyone who may have seen a vehicle in the area of Hillsdale Lake on May 16 or 17 that had a large number of white bags on a trailer or in a truck to call the Johnson County Sheriff’s Office at 913-715-5561.
