A Guy Used a Riding Mower as His Getaway Car During a Burglary Spree


I am no expert, but you gotta think something a little faster would be in order here.


There’s a 54-year-old guy named James Harrington in Waterloo, Iowa.  And he went on a burglary spree a few weeks ago . . . where he used a John Deere riding lawnmower as his getaway car.



Those top out somewhere between seven and 10 miles-an-hour.



First, James rode his mower to a garage and stole a bunch of stuff inside.  Then he headed to a convenience store and stole a bottle of Absolut vodka.



He even managed to get home on the mower without getting caught . . . but the cops identified him from surveillance footage and arrested him.


He’s been charged with burglary, theft, and driving with a suspended license.
