AMERICAN FALLS, Idaho (AP) — Call it an “International” incident.

Officials in southeastern Idaho are looking for two men who apparently helped themselves to two red International Harvester brand tractors sitting in a farmer’s field near American Falls last week.

Power County Chief Deputy Jackie Morris says the farmer noticed the tractors missing on Nov. 18. KIFI-TV reports residents had seen the tractors being hauled away on trailers pulled by pickup trucks.

Nobody got a license plate number, but Morris says the white Dodge pickup with dual wheels and the blue Chevrolet pickup match the description of the vehicles driven by two men who had stopped at a nearby farm looking for scrap metal.

Morris is contacting businesses that purchase scrap metal and tractors for salvage in an effort to track down the thieves.
