It's not exactly like stealing an elephant from a zoo-but its close.

Seasonal resident George Jacobs returned to his Vergas area residence to fin that somebody pulled onto his property-and hauled away a large, 500-gallon propane tank.


A Twin Cities area resident, he left the area for the winter in October, and re-turned April 17 to discover the missing tank.

An investigation is ongoing by the Otter Tail County Sheriff's Department.
