Newland residents may see a new tractor where the Avery County Agriculture
& Horticulture Fair tractor sat- and this one is chained to a telephone
A tractor is raffled every year and its proceeds benefit the Fair. The
original 2007 tractor, hitch and all, was stolen on July 17. Chains aren’t
the only thing to deter a thief from the second tractor, according to Newland
Police Chief Jason Brown.
Officers know it's there, and are going to give the area some extra attention.
Anyone with any information on the original tractor’s whereabouts
is strongly encouraged to contact Newland Police Department at (828)733-2024.
