Riding Mower Theft Suspects Sought
Bossier City police are asking for your help in identifying and finding the men believed responsible for stealing at least three riding lawn mowers from home improvement stores. They were caught on surveilance video taking an orange Husqvarna mower from the Lowes store on Airline Drive back on February 3rd. They cut a security cable, loaded it into the bed of an older model blue Ford pickup truck, and drove off. But, as they did, the pickup's tailgate fell off. That's the one you see in the photo accompanying this post. If you recognize that tailgate or know anything about the stolen mower, you're asked to call Bossier City Detectives or Bossier Crime Stoppers.
Police think these same guys may have also stolen a John Deer riding mower from the Home Depot store on Airline Drive on February 17th. In that case, the stolen mower was loaded into a brown Ford pickup. And they say there's a chance these same guys may have also stolen another mower from another home improvement store in Shreveport.
Bossier Crime Stoppers is offering a $405 reward for information that leads to the arrest of these thieves. You can call Bossier Crime Stoppers at 424-4100 or visit the Bossier Crime Stoppers website at www.bossiercrimestoppers.org.
