Missing Farm Equipment Found On Iowa Farm

March 27, 2014, 5:55 PM by Jared Ransom

Missing Farm Equipment Found On Iowa Farm

Fourteen years after resigning his position as Osceola County Deputy Sheriff, Mike Block is connected to another investigation. Businesses are being called by law enforcement to go to his home just south of Sibley, Iowa, to collect items that disappeared from local businesses.

One of the businesses that received a phone call this week was O'Brien County Implement in Sheldon. While employees would not go on camera, they did say that in October of last year, a baler disappeared from their property. They have tried to track it down since but have not made any progress.  

On Tuesday, Sheriff's deputies called to say they found baler on Block's property and the business owners could come pick it up.  Once they arrived, they noticed it had been used and still had remnants of corn attached to it. After they brought it back to the shop, they found out that other area businesses received the same phone call to collect missing property.

They say their biggest shock isn't that the baler was found, but where it was found. They describe Block as a loyal customer who is friendly to everyone in the business.

We contacted the Osceola County Sheriff's Office and no charges have been filed and no arrests have been made in this case, which is concerning to those collecting their missing equipment.

The Sheriff's Department is not releasing any other details about the investigation. No word yet on how many other businesses were called out to Block's home.
