Christian County Investigating 20 Machine Shed Burglaries
Christian County Investigating 20 Machine Shed Burglaries

The Christian County Sheriff’s Department is asking for the public’s help in solving a rash of machine shed burglaries that’s taken place over the past two months.

Sheriff Bruce Kettlekamp says 20 sheds have been burgaled all over the county, usually between the hours of 11 p.m. and 6 a.m. There aren’t any suspects, but deputies think there are two or more people driving pickups or large SUV’s to steal copper wire and copper tubing.

Police are asking people to be on the lookout for black smoke similar to tire fires, as insulation has to be burned from the insulation to be sold.
