    Saw a couple back into a neighbors driveway, load a mower in the trunk and drive away. I took off to get the license plate number and after about a three mile chase the dipstick turned on to a deadend. Busted!!! Now I have a grateful neighbor and a stepped up police patrol.

    Did you confront him or just get the plate?

    In a neighborhood of +/- 1700sq.ft. ranchers a chase draws a lot of attention on Saturday afternoon. When they turned onto the deadend several kids and their parents congregeated to observe from about 100ft. I stayed in my vehicle while they tried to turn around and find a way out. After 2-3 mintues they realized they were going nowhere so they got out, unloaded the mower and started apologizing. The city's finest was called and I returned the mower. Since most everyone knows me from walking my dog I retraced the chase route to let folks know what the chase was about and to let them know what kind of vehicle to look out for in the future.
    ps.... The pair (male and female) were early 20's and caucasian

    I sure hope an arrest was made followed by a trip to see a very good prosecutor and Judge. The apology thing saying We're Sorry...........really means We're Sorry we got caught!:nono:
