Later that evening, Mr. Beaver called to report there was activity at the neighboring farm again. Dfc. Goodman responded there and walked up the lane where he confronted four individuals with two trucks. Investigation and interviews of the subjects indicated that earlier in the day Craig Engle had contacted one of the subjects and wanted to “do some scrapping” of old metal on that farm and had walked there. When he didn’t want to walk back , the one subject called his son to come and pick him up and when he did, the truck got stuck. The man sent Craig Engle to get another truck to pull them out but the truck couldn’t do it. Craig Engle then went across the road to his former employer, took a New Holland tractor there and returned with it to attempt to pull the truck out. Engle then returned the tractor to across the road. The man and his son were in the truck when Mr. Beaver had confronted Engle, and when they heard the police were being called left the area. The four that Dfc. Goodman had stopped, all stated they had just come down there to retrieve the truck left earlier. Craig Engle had not returned with them.
