FBI is searching for GMO crop vandals
In this week’s Crimestoppers we’re taking a look at a case of crop vandalism.
Investigators from the FBI are trying to find out what happened to GMO sugar beet crops in a field near Ashland.
The bureau is calling the damage to the Syngenta crops as an act of economic sabotage.
About 6,500 beet plants were destroyed when they were pulled from the fields on two separate occasions.
Beth Ann Steele with the FBI says they have not confirmed that the crops were destroyed because they were genetically modified, “we certainly are looking at the aspects of the genetically engineered sugar beets to determine whether or not that aspect of the farming process was being targeted and certainly that is a possibility.”
A $10,000 reward is being offered for information in this federal investigation by a private organization.
The case number is 062513. If you have any information concerning a possible suspect in this crime call Crimestoppers at 1-800-850-0580.
Mercedes Benz of Medford will also pay up to $1,000 for information that leads to the arrest and the filing of charges, and you can remain anonymous.
