Oklahoma farmer claims $2,000 worth of fertilizer was stolen from his Jones property


JONES, Okla. (KFOR) – A Jones farmer is trying to track down the person who stole thousands of dollars worth of fertilizer from his property.

If you walk around Ruzycki’s farm, you will see that he pays close attention to detail.

Each flower and vegetable is ideally planted in rows.

“We have been farming for 14 years,” Ruzycki said. “We’re just trying to feed our community.”

But during these 14 years of activity, Ruzycki would never have imagined that he would become the victim of a crime.

“To make someone feel like people are comfortable picking you up whether or not they know what you’re doing,” Ruzycki said. “It’s an uncomfortable feeling.”

It was last Saturday while Ruzycki was working on his farm when someone was at the bottom of his driveway – loading bags of earthworm casts and carrying them.

Ruzycki told KFOR the fertilizer was worth $2,000.

“I could have stopped at the property at any time,” Ruzycki said. “And they had no idea where or what I was doing unless they knew, in which case it’s even worse.”

Ruzycki told KFOR he was examining neighbors’ security cameras to catch the culprit.
