 HILLVIEW – A $1,000 reward has been issued following a break-in and theft at Bullitt County Stone.

Superintendent Troy Inman said someone entered the private property sometime early in the week, stealing a John Deere Gator worth about $6,000.

Inman said the Gator was removed from a locked storage shed.

“They used a gun to shoot the power pole and the lock off (the shed),” he said.

The main security gate along Bells Mill Road was also damaged. Inman said perpetrators slammed the gate and ran over a security keypad.

Inman said no other items were taken from the shed or the rest of the property. A key to the Gator was found inside the shed afterward.

Anyone with information concerning the event should call Inman, 957-7780, or the Hillview Police Department at 955-6808.
