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 find 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 returned April 17 to discover the missing tank.

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