Hay Thefts Reported in Larimer County

Hay Bales, facebook

When this press release came in from the Sheriff’s Department, I felt so sad for so many of us trying to buy and AFFORD hay for our horses and livestock. Please keep your hay secure.

Larimer County Sheriff Justin Smith is warning rural residents to take proper precautions to protect their hay. Reports of stolen hay are starting to come into the Larimer County Sheriff’s Office. Hay theft has been an issue nationwide this summer due to the drought and significant increase in the cost of hay.

Recently, the Larimer County Sheriff’s Office received a report from a farmer located on East County Road 76 that someone had stolen $5,000 worth of hay as well as damaged another $800 worth. The hay, both round and square bales, was stolen directly from the field.

Investigators recommend hay be stored out of sight and in a secure location if possible. Smaller bales should be stored near your home as well as insuring fences are in good condition and gates are locked.

Anyone with information regarding this or any other crime is asked to call the Larimer County Sheriff’s Office at 970-416-1985 or Crime Stoppers at 970-221-6868 where you will remain anonymous and possibly be eligible for a cash reward.
