Nebraska man accused of stealing lawn mower from Wal-Mart

LEXINGTON, Neb. (AP) — A Nebraska man has been accused of stealing a riding lawn mower from a Wal-Mart store and driving it off the lot.

The Kearney Hub reports (http://bit.ly/1cbng8c ) a sheriff’s deputy found a man driving the mower Wednesday about 10 miles from the store where it was stolen during the weekend.

Forty-nine-year-old Gursham Gillett, of Cozad, was arrested and charged with one count each of theft by shoplifting and criminal mischief. He’s accused of stealing the mower from a Wal-Mart Supercenter in Lexington.

Security footage shows a man entering the store, fueling up the lawn mower, cutting a chain link fence where the mower was stored and taking off on it. The video shows the man cutting another fence on Interstate 80 before driving out of the camera’s view.
