They are seeking help from the Sheriff's Office and the county attorney in getting their money back. *Theft* Nanneman Brothers Automotive says that someone cut their fence to their salvage yard on the northeast side, and made off with a car battery worth $100.

When the man got home, he saw the same truck driving around his house, which worried him, so he called authorities. They were unable to locate the driver of the Ford. 3 a.m. Thursday morning, a man was brought in to Campbell County Hospital, apparently the victim of an assault. He was unable to answer questions intelligibly. The case has been taken over by Crook County Sheriff. *Information provided by GPD Lieutenant Chuck Deaton and Campbell County Undersheriff Quentin Reynolds.* #county17 #news -- *Brenda Kirk* Community Maven for | 614.940.7121 Twitter | Instagram | Facebook PitchEngine™ | *Connecting Communities* | Twitter | Facebook
