Eastern Indiana police say a man allegedly stole a semi and two trailers loaded with soybeans and then sold the grain for about $17,000.

The Randolph County Sheriff's Department says the 55-year-old man was arrested Friday. The Star Press reports the man hasn't been formally charged, but faces preliminary charges that include theft in excess of $50,000.

Capt. Tom Pullins says the man allegedly stole a semi-tractor trailer loaded with soybeans from a Randolph County farmer in June.

He says surveillance video shows the same stolen semi was used to steal another soybean-filled trailer from a Randolph County business in September. Pullins says the suspect later told the soybeans for about $17,000.

The second trailer has been located, but the tractor and trailer stolen in June remain missing.
