Couple accused of riding naked on stolen mower arrested
JOPLIN (AP) — Authorities have arrested a couple accused of riding naked on a stolen lawn mower northwest of Joplin.
Jasper County Det. Tim Williams said the 55-year-old man and a 40-year-old woman admitted that they rode the lawn mower home naked after their clothes were stolen while they were skinny dipping in a creek. The Joplin Globe reports that authorities arrested them Tuesday morning on suspicion of stealing after finding them at a house with the riding mower parked in the front yard.
Williams said an investigation determined that the lawn mower did not belong to either of them. No charges had been filed as of Friday morning.
