Performance (that’s what is stamped on tongue) trailer and a Thompson’s Center Encore muzzleloader with a separate 30-06 barrel with Bushnell scope. If anyone tries to sell to you they are stolen. If you have any info about these please let us know.”

The two males then made their way to Bryceland where they stole more items from a farm.

They stole our Kawasaki mule and a brand new air compressor from our farm in Bryceland. They were seen heading north on Hwy. 9 going towards Arcadia shortly after 3pm. Two white males, one wearing a white cap, the other looks like he has on a green shirt. The truck has a distinctive front end with different colored headlight glass. Y’all need to check your deer cameras. Please share this post and catch these criminals!!”
