Worth County - - Lock up your lawn equipment. Another burglary ring is swiping farm and lawn gear from yards in broad daylight. This time in Worth County.

Phillip Lumpkin was a victim. Over the weekend, thieves stole $800 worth of equipment.

When he got home from church, he noticed two chainsaws, a weed eater, hedge trimmers, and a brand new generator were missing. 

"A hundred degree heat, trying to have something and then the thieves try to take it all from me. It's just not fair," Lumpkin says.

Worth County Sheriff Freddy Tompkins says it's happened at least five times recently in Sumner and in Shingler.

Tompkins believes the crooks are exchanging the items for drugs and money in Albany.
