Details of the case:

According to a criminal complaint, the Trooper Pisarchick of the Pennsylvania State Police Auto Theft Unit received information that Steven Roy Fyock was in possession of a stolen John Deere front end loader tractor at his farm in the Munderf area of Jefferson County.

A search warrant was obtained for the property and was executed with the assistance of Pennsylvania State Police Auto Theft Task Force Officer Monroe.

According to the complaint, during the search, a John Deere tractor was discovered at the property and was identified as a model 1050 with its true identity masked and disguised. The tractor was painted blue in order to appear as a New Holland tractor and its identifiers were removed including the Product Identification Number (PIN) plate.

The complaint notes that during an interview with Trooper Pisarchick, Fyock admitted to painting the tractor and stripping it in order to hide its identity since it was stolen.

Based on the investigation, charges were filed in Magisterial District Judge David B. Inzana on Tuesday, February 19.
