Police blotter: Botched tractor delivery


Sometimes you mistakenly get your neighbor’s mail. Sometimes it’s their newspaper. Sometimes it’s their tractor.

Blotter’s below.

Parked: A Cherry Orchard Lane resident reported that an unknown person parked a tractor he does not own in his fenced yard about a week ago. The owner believes the tractor may have been dropped off by someone hired to service the tractor, but that he got the wrong address. He waited a week for someone to claim it.
