An Oak Hill Road, Lyerly man reported the theft of a riding lawn mower to the sheriff’s department on Wednesday of this week.

The complainant came to the sheriff’s department to report the theft.  He told a deputy that he had been financing the lawn mower from Farmer’s Furniture in Summerville and had fallen behind on his payments.  He thought that maybe Farmer’s Furniture had picked up the lawn mower.  However, when he contacted Farmer’s Furniture, they said that they didn’t have the mower.

The report did not indicate any other possible explanations for the missing lawn mower, and the case was turned over to an investigator.
