Mille Lacs County Sheriff seeks info on stolen hunting blind intended for veterans
The blind was located on private property in rural Milaca Township and appears to have been dragged away with an all-terrain vehicle.
MILACA — The Mille Lacs County Sheriff's Office is seeking the public’s help in locating a stolen hunting blind intended to be used by veterans and public servants.
The blind was located on private property in rural Milaca Township and appears to have been dragged away with an all-terrain vehicle sometime between Dec. 27, 2021, and Jan. 11, according to a Wednesday, Jan. 26, Facebook post.
The blind is a Banks brand Stump 4 Scout hunting blind and was provided by American Heroes Outdoors for use by veterans and public servants.
“This was a new program that we were working to build on to help provide hunting opportunites on private ground to Veterans, Law Enforcement, Fire fighters and First responders free of charge,” stated the post shared by the sheriff’s office. “ … We had picked this version for mobility to move and access for handicapped hunters. Unfortunately, the skid version in this scenario appears to have been enticing for thieves.”
Those with information regarding the whereabouts of this hunting blind may contact Mille Lacs County Sheriff's Office Investigator John Sammis at 320-983-8240 or may leave an anonymous message at the Mille Lacs County Sheriff's Office tipline at 320-983-8346.
