stolen 20-35 in NE

Bill Wehrman Hi everybody. First time I posted here, wish I wasn't. My 20-35 was stolen from my farm near Nelson Nebraska in the last ten days. It is in real good shape, the front corner of the fender is pulled up above the pulley. On steel, has rear scrapers, little paint left. If someone has seen one show up out of the blue, I sure would like to hear about it, or contact the Nuckolls County sheriff in Nelson, NE. Thank You, Bill
John (C-IL) BTW, Bill posted on another board that his tractor had been found and will give us the scoop when he gets it back
Bill Wehrman Here we go. This all started in '91, when I quit a farm job and had to get rid of some the junk that I had drug in there. I met a collector who agreed to buy a 10-20 IHC from me for $300. Running, on steel, real good tractor for that price. Said he would come right over and get it. Two years later I am still taking heat about the tractor, and my sister wants it, so I tell her to take it and send this guy his money back. She pays me and I send him a check. The guy is chapped about it and defames my character to beat the band, but NEVER says a word to me. Fast forward to this month. This guy comes onto my place, looks through all my stuff, loads my AC 20-35 and leaves. He then goes into town, tells a DEPUTY SHERIFF that he took this tractor to "get even" with my sister, and takes the tractor to his mommies house and hides it in a shed. Two weeks later, I reported it to the Sheriff in person, nobody knows anything about it. My stolen tractor was a fairly hot topic locally, and this guy was telling people that he had it. He calls me early yesterday morning, tells me that he took it because he thought that it was my sister's, and that if I give him $1000 that I can have it back. I said sure, and chatted him up like we were old pals to buy time, and headed for the Sheriff. I was just getting to the part about the deputy when he pipes up. The Sheriff stops him and asks if he knows something about this. As soon as Deputy starts speaking again, the Sheriff closes his eyes and his head droops down. When Deputy and I are done screaming at each other, The Sheriff calls this guy and he tells him the whole story, even tells him that he still has the check for this deal 14 years ago and that he does not want the money, he wants to "get even"! I had to tell them that I would not press charges if I wanted to recover it now. My lawyer says get the tractor back first and we will raise hell later. Guess what, the Deputy, the thief, and the county attorney are all pals!!! I am going to try to ride them into the ground. The State Attorney General's office tells me that the good old boy system don't fly around their place, it's in their hands now. The mighty Green Goose in back home, secure, and UNDAMAGED. Fine police work. Thanks Everybody. P.S.- Hey Allen, can you really zap somebody with a lightening bolt??
