Southern Indiana ginseng thefts under investigation

first_imgHarrison County, In. — Indiana Conservation Officers are asking for the public’s assistance in slowing a string of environmental thefts in southern Indiana. Charles Cole Jr., 44, of New Salisbury, is wanted on an active felony arrest warrant, stemming from an investigation earlier this month.On October 10, 2018, Indiana Conservation Officers received a report of trespass in northern Harrison County, after a landowner’s trail camera captured a late-night photo of a man suspected of stealing ginseng plants from the property. The landowner also discovered that a separate trail camera had been stolen from a tree.Upon viewing the trail camera photo, Indiana Conservation Officers immediately identified the man as Charles Cole Jr., from recent dealings with him involving a separate trespass/ginseng theft case. After speaking with Cole, they discovered stolen ginseng and a stolen memory card from another trail camera at his residence.During the course of their investigation, Indiana Conservation Officers recovered stolen ginseng in addition to 9 stolen trail cameras and memory cards. As a result, they sought an arrest warrant through the Harrison County Prosecutor’s Office on 10/19/18.Meanwhile, on 10/21/18, Indiana Conservation Officers fielded additional complaints after Cole was again caught on a property owner’s trail camera trespassing and digging ginseng in Washington County.To date, Cole has sold at least 40 pounds of ginseng, much of which is believed to have been stolen from unsuspecting landowners. Current market value for dry ginseng in Harrison County is approximately $500-$650 per pound.Ginseng is regulated to ensure a healthy population for the future.

Cech would welcome ‘great’ Rooney

first_img Chelsea have offered Rooney a route out of Manchester United, but a bid was rejected by the Barclays Premier League champions despite the apparent desire of the striker to leave and there is some way to run in the bid for his services. Jose Mourinho insisted the England forward is the Blues’ only transfer target and, while praising Rooney, experienced goalkeeper Cech preferred to focus on preparing for the new season. “Wayne Rooney is a great player but at the moment he’s a Man United player,” Cech said. “We’ll see what’s going to happen. He’s a great player. Let’s see. “You always want to have the biggest and strongest squad so you can challenge for titles. That’s why you have a manager and sporting director to take care of that and you have to do the most important part and that’s the work on the pitch. “We already have a few more players and a great squad. If the manager doesn’t think we have enough he will try to get players in. It is only his decision. “For players, we concentrate on getting fit and doing our best, to play as much as we can. That’s all we can do. In football things are changing every day with every squad. As time goes on, every team can make some changes. Anything can happen.” Mourinho, whose second spell as Blues boss began with a 1-0 win over Singha All-Stars in Bangkok on Wednesday, has already signed Andre Schurrle, Marco van Ginkel and Mark Schwarzer, the latter providing back-up to Cech. Cech is one of the survivors from the Special One’s first spell at Stamford Bridge, when Chelsea won a first Premier League title in 50 years in 2005 before retaining the trophy as the Portuguese established himself as the most successful manager in the club’s history. Cech sees little alteration in Mourinho after nearly six years away. “He is as hungry as ever, he wants to be successful,” Cech said. “When you have someone who works at such a high standard every day it never changes. It’s the same.” Goalkeeper Petr Cech has endorsed Chelsea’s pursuit of “great player” Wayne Rooney and knows nothing can be discounted in football transfer business.center_img Press Associationlast_img read more

Suarez subdued at open training

first_imgLiverpool striker Luis Suarez was cheered by fans at an open training session at Anfield but remained reluctant to acknowledge the support he was given. Press Association Just like on Saturday at Steven Gerrard’s testimonial virtually everything the Uruguay international did brought the select 5,000-strong crowd to life. However, the 26-year-old did not seem keen to acknowledge their backing – even when the rest of the squad did so at the end of the session. center_img Suarez’s agent has made it known to the club his client wants to play in the Champions League and he has been the subject of two bids from Arsenal, the last amounting to £40million plus £1. He took full part in training, even going through some individual three-quarter sprints almost the full length of the pitch while the rest of the squad recovered from a small-sided game exercise. The striker is slightly behind the majority of his team-mates in terms of preparation as his return to pre-season training was delayed as he was allowed extended leave following international duty in the Confederations Cup. He is also suspended for the first six matches of the season as his 10-game ban for biting Chelsea’s Branislav Ivanovic last April is carried forward into the new campaign. But he was fully involved in training, with one looping shot onto the crossbar cheered by the Kop, and showed he has retained much of his sharpness during his summer break with one smart volley in the game situation bringing a good save out of Simon Mignolet. The session also saw the first public appearance of fellow striker Daniel Sturridge, who has been sidelined with an ankle injury since the end of last season. He also took full part in the training session and with two friendlies remaining – one against Valerenga in Norway on Wednesday and the other versus Celtic in Dublin on Saturday – before the Reds host Stoke on the opening day of the season, the England international will be looking to increase his involvement. Suarez’s suspension means Sturridge will be required to lead the line, although summer signing Iago Aspas has put in some promising displays in pre-season while the club are hoping to secure a deal for Atletico Madrid forward Diego Costa after lodging a £21.8million bid last week. last_img read more
