Couple accuses MMU of trespassing
Reports of trespassing in rural Saline County are fairly routine, but a report filed Saturday listed an unusual suspect.
A Houstonia couple filed a complaint with the Saline County Sheriff's Department saying representatives of the city of Marshall were trespassing on their property in the Blackwater bottoms area.
According to the couple, employees of Marshall Municipal Utilities and Precision Pipeline were on the property installing part of MMU's natural gas main. The couple made the trespassing complaint because they had not reached an easement agreement with the city.
