GDF Enterprises equipment recovered in rural Jackson burglary case

A Toro zero-turn riding mower owned by GDF Enterprises was among more than $86,000 worth of equipment recovered recently near Jackson as part of a burglary ring.

According to the Jackson County Sheriff's Department, Delane Hendricks, 49, of rural Jackson was arrested Sept. 26 after multiple search warrants were executed at his Middletown Township home. The search involved equipment from three states.

According to the Jackson County Sheriff's Department, when deputies arrived for the search, "Hendricks was observed jumping out of a bedroom window and proceeded to run into a standing cornfield. Deputies pursued on foot but were unable to locate Hendricks."

The report said Hendricks was found hours later, hiding in a combine cab at a neighbor's farm.

The Toro mower was valued at $11,500 and was stolen from GDF Enterprises in Windom on Aug. 5, 2016. Among the many stolen items found during the search were two Can-Am ATVs valued at $11,000 to $15,000 and a Cat skid loader valued at $40,461. The Can Ams were taken from Jaycox Implement in Worthington and the skid loader was stolen from Butler Machinery in Sioux Falls.

Hendricks is charged with fleeing a police officer on foot, four counts of possession of stolen property, three counts of burglary in the third degree and two counts of theft. Jackson County officials say the case is still under investigation and additional charges are possible.
