Sheriff: Naked couple arrested on stolen lawn mower
JOPLIN, Mo. — Authorities have arrested a couple accused of riding naked on a stolen lawn mower in Missouri.
Jasper County sheriff’s Det. Tim Williams said a 55-year-old man and a 40-year-old woman admitted that they rode the lawn mower home naked after their clothing was stolen while they skinny dipped in a creek northwest of Joplin.
The Joplin Globe reports that authorities arrested the pair Tuesday morning on suspicion of stealing after finding them at a house with the riding mower parked in the front yard.
Williams says an investigation determined that the lawn mower didn’t belong to either of them.
