Stolen Lawn Equipment Case Cracked

By  | 

Two Tallahassee lawn businesses victimized by burglars are getting their equipment back.

The cases were cracked with the help of one of the victims leading detectives to a Leon County home. All of the stolen equipment was found in the backyard of a house off Highway 90 near the Jefferson County line.

Among the tens of thousands of dollars worth of lawn equipment recovered were two trailers and a pick-up truck.

The suspected burglars weren't home, but they're facing a number of charges.

Kathi Kline of the Leon County Robbery Task Force says, "The charges they'll be facing are armed robbery, they'll also be facing grand theft auto, along with the auto and armed robbery charge, they're going to get grand theft also."

Detectives say the equipment will be returned to the owners.
