Police looking for person cutting down, stealing trees in northeast Nebraska

LINCOLN, Neb. (KLKN) – Deputies are searching for a person who is cutting down trees on city property and stealing them, the Knox County Sheriff’s Office said Wednesday.

On March 8, deputies received a report that trees had been cut down and stolen over a month ago near the golf course and ball fields in Niobrara.

In a press release, authorities say the trees appeared to have been cut into smaller pieces for easier transport.

The sheriff’s office thinks the person responsible is a white man, possibly with red hair, driving a red and white pickup, which might have a South Dakota license plate.

Anyone with information is asked to call the Knox County Sheriff’s Office at 402-288-4261.
