Tractor goes missing from Woodpecker Road home

Michael Buettner

Cars, trucks, SUVs, motorcycles, mopeds and all-terrain vehicles show up all too routinely as stolen items in the incidents reported to Chesterfield police. An incident in this week’s roundup, however, is a little unusual, and serves as a reminder both of how much of the county remains rural and how risky it is nowadays to leave anything unlocked even in those rural areas:

• An unlocked tractor with the keys inside was reported stolen on Nov. 8 from a home in the 4700 block of Woodpecker Road.
