BOSSIER PARISH, LA (KSLA) -  The Bossier Parish Sheriff's Office is asking for the public's help in locating whoever stole farm equipment from a Plain Dealing barn.

Detectives say the incident happened sometime between Monday, June 30 and Tuesday, July 1 in the 1000 block of Highway 537. They say the thieves stole a green 2003 John Deere 894 eight-row corn header valued at $25,000. They also stole a red and yellow New Holland 320 hay baler valued at $1,500 and a John Deere water pump valued at $1,000.
