Stolen pedal tractors

Postby Roger G. » Sat Oct 20, 2012 8:31 am

Be on the lookout for someone trying to sell these.

Share it Pedal Tractors Stolen

Gerald Gebhard, 88 and Sue, 80, have been robbed twice in two weeks.
Two weeks ago burglars broke into their garage and removed 3 pedal tractors from their collection. The Gebhard collect and show things, it’s a hobby that makes life fun, and interesting in their golden years.
Yesterday, during the night hours, someone broke into their garage again, and removed 15 more pedal tractors, the reminder of the collection valued at approx. $25,000 according to Mr. Gebhard.
If you have any information on this event, please call the Boscobel (Wi) Police Dept. at 608-375-4122.

The sad part is these tractors have probably already been sold for scrap.

Possibly, but this seems to have been target specifically at these tractors, so i suspect they had a sale for them lined up.

They would be very wise to notify the Toy Farmer (host of the National Farm Toy Show). Their show is November 2-3-4 in Dyersville, IA. I would bet $$$ those tractors get "fenced" there...... Dyersville is only an hour from Boscobel.

I hope Mr Gebhard had insurance that would cover his loss, and it would good if he had an identifying mark on them somewhere that might help in recovering them. I sure hope so.
It's a shame that someone would cause this kind of stress in their lives at their age.

Check and watch your local Craigs list, local sell & buy news paper and ebay for the crooks trying to sell them.
I'm technically misunderstood at times i guess its been this way my whole life so why should it change now.
