(SEDGWICK COUNTY, Kan.) — The Sedgwick County Sheriff's Office credits the CALIN Network for the recovery of a stolen backhoe.
CALIN stands for Construction, Agriculture, Livestock Information Network. The sheriff's office says the program is designed to get information regarding stolen farm equipment, construction equipment and livestock out as quickly as possible.
On November 18, information was posted on the CALIN Network about a backhoe being stolen from Sherwood Construction. The sheriff's office says a resident of Harvey County remembered seeing a backhoe matching the description, and contacted authorities.
The backhoe was returned to the company, but the case remains under investigation.
