Forty-four–year–old Jody Jackson was arrested for criminal mischief, unauthorized use of motor propelled vehicle and trespassing, after officers responded to BNSF Rail Depot in reference to a vandalism of a front–end loader on Dec. 16.

The Depot Master told the officer that someone had taken the front–end loader, worth approximately $120,000, early Wednesday morning, and returned it with an estimated $20,000 worth of damage to the right side at 7 a.m.

According to the court documents, a different BNSF worker said he noticed a guy returning the loader and recognized the person to be Jackson, who previously worked for BNSF.

After officers located Jackson, Jackson admitted to taking the front end loader to clear the snow from the YMCA parking lot, Ideal Lenin parking lot and Jesus Christ Latter–Day Saints parking lot.

Jackson stated that he ran into a tree while clearing the snow at the YMCA.
