The Blue Earth County Sheriff’s Office investigated a suspicious vehicle early Friday near Minneopa Park on Highway 68, just across the border with Brown County.

Two individuals were taken into custody and deputies located multiple sawzalls along with a catalytic converter and resonator in their vehicle. The cuts on the catalytic converter and resonator appear to be very fresh. Part numbers suggest the exhaust components are likely off of a Ford one-ton truck.

The Blue Earth County Sheriff’s Office encourages citizens and businesses in proximity to Hwy 68 to check the exhaust systems of their trucks that were parked outside.

If you have any information on this issue, please contact the Blue Earth County Sheriff’s Office at 507-304-4863.
