  • A thief has burglarized one of the houses bought by Peabody Energy on Rocky Branch Road for it’s expansion of the Cottage Grove Mine.
    According to a Saline County Sheriff’s Report on Saturday, July 26, mine security worker Mary Sheldon was on patrol and noted a white 4-door pickup truck with a trailer parked at a house at 625 Rocky Branch Road.
    On the trailer was a water heater, pipes, a wood burning stove and stovepipe. She noted all the doors of the house were open.
    Sheldon called into the building and thought she could hear footsteps, but received no response.
    She went back to her vehicle and a man ran out and got into the pickup truck. Sheldon got in front of the truck and asked the man to identify himself, but she could not understand his name. He said he had permission from a mine employee named Brown to be on the property. The man drove away.
    The case remains under investigation.
