EL CENTO – Last night Sheriff Deputies obtained a semi-truck with flatbed trailers loaded with hay. There was no identifying marks on the hay and the driver did not have a pick up order. The driver indicated that he picked up the hay in Calipatria; however, he could not recall the field location, leading the deputy to believe it was stolen.


If you are a hay grower, we advise that you check your stacks and contact Investigator Rudy Moreno at the Imperial County Sheriff’s Office – Agriculture Crime Unit if anything seems out of order.

Rudy may be reached at (760) 604-1790 or via email at
