Stolen Boat Found in Corn Field Near Wagner
Every now and then you hear of a fugitive fleeing from police and hiding in a corn field. I've never heard of someone hiding a stolen boat in one, but that is what happened.
Ag Week reports that Wagner area farmer Seth Fischer was combining a corn field on Tuesday (December 12) when he saw light bouncing back at him from the crops in an unusual way. He stopped and found that a boat and trailer were hiding among the stalks.
The boat and trailer had been two of many things that were stolen from a Wagner storage unit a month earlier. Police had been stymied by the theft until the Fischer's combine turned up the stolen goods.
