The Macon County Sheriff’s Department recently recovered a bull calf and a Honda 2-inch water pump that were both reported stolen from a Macon County residence in late January 2022.
According to detective Kevin Woodard the owner reported the theft on January 26, 2022, stating that the calf and pump were taken from his Winklers Road residence sometime between January 22 and January 23.
