THOMASVILLE, GA (WALB) -

30-year-old Jason Smith was arrested Friday morning and charged with several counts of felony theft by taking.

Over the last two weeks, lawn care companies in Thomasville have filed complaints with the Thomasville Police Department about items like leaf blowers, weed whackers, and other equipment being taken from their trucks while they are at work sites.

Investigators say Smith would take the equipment while the workers were out of sight of their trucks, and would then sell the items to pawn shops in neighboring counties like Colquitt and Grady.
