Person spotted trying to take away pieces of crashed plane

A Sheriff's deputy is responding to a complaint that someone is attempting to remove parts from the scene of a plane crash that occurred in August off Brooksville Road in Alexander.

A pilot dusting a sweet cornfield spotted a wire stretched over the field and in an attempt to avoid it, he crashed his plane. Louis C. Christie, 48, of Stephentown, was unhurt.

The plane was a 1974 Piper Pawnee D Spray Plane. The fuselage of the plane was largely undamaged.

FAA inspectors were called to the scene and the accident was investigation by the FAA and the Sheriff's Office. Their findings have not been released.

UPDATE 11:48 a.m.: According to Chief Deputy Gordon Dibble, the plane's owner or a representative of the owner is at the crash site specifically to remove remains of the wreckage and law enforcement assistance/supervision was requested.
