Crooks will steal your lawn mower

Posted: Updated:
MOULTRIE, GA (WALB) -

With summer here, lawn equipment thefts may be on the rise in South Georgia.

Moultrie law enforcement arrested one man Tuesday with the stolen equipment in his hand.

The property was returned to the owner, but Sergeant Raul Leal at the Moultrie Police Department has advice to avoid being a victim of this crime of opportunity.

"Basically just try and keep your property secure, try not to leave where it's visible, if you have a garage make sure it's closed. Not where there is much foot traffic where your stuff is visible."

Law enforcement advises anyone that sees a suspicious person to call the non-emergency 911 line.
