NEW LONDON, Mo -- Two cousins have been arrested in connection with the loss of a manure spreader and hay rake in 2011 near Hannibal.

Daniel Dean Meyers of New London and Christopher Lee Myers of Hannibal were taken into custody on two counts of felony stealing and remain lodged in jail in lieu of $25,000, Ralls County Sheriff Paul Forney said.

The equipment, valued at $7,000, was left on a farm on Sunnyside Lane near Hannibal in October 2011 where the owners had been using it in their farm operations.

A Ralls County Sheriff's Department investigation revealed that the equipment had later been sold for scrap metal.
