BOISE, Idaho -

Authorities in southwest Idaho are investigating the theft of 220 bales of hay worth nearly $3,000.

The Ada County Sheriff's Office tells the Idaho Statesman the owner discovered the hay missing from a haystack on his property.

Police say the each bale weighs about 90 pounds so whoever took the hay likely used a truck and trailer.

Police say the theft occurred sometime between Jan. 12 and Jan. 26.
