You know thieves target farms for copper wire. Now they're also after chemicals.

Recently thieves stole more than $80,000 worth of fertilizer and insecticides from a Decatur County farm on Yates Springs Road.

Investigators want to warn others and hopefully get some tips to help catch the culprits. One of the men caught on camera was wearing a baseball cap backwards and had his face covered.

"If you don't have a secure place to keep your chemicals over night I suggest they only buy enough to utilize that day. Abound and Headline that stuff is very expensive, five gallons of this stuff is about $1,500," said Inv. Terry Phillips, Decatur Co. Sheriff's Office.

If you recognize the suspect or know someone selling farm chemicals illegally, the Decatur County Sheriff's office would like to hear from you.

Call (229) 248-2105 if you can give investigators any leads, you could earn a reward.
