Stolen Mowers Recovered

Several expensive lawn-mowers stolen in Chipley have been recovered following the break-up of a juvenile burglary ring suspected of taking a half million dollars worth of property across the southeast.

The mowers, each one valued at about 10,000 dollars, were taken from Lane's Outdoor Equipment last month.

Three 17-year-old high school students have been arrested in Baldwin County near Mobile.

They're accused of stealing tractors, boats, a bucket-truck and an excavator in six states.

Investigators say the teenagers sold at least part of their loot on the internet.

The burglary ring had apparently been in operation about a year.

The investigation is continuing and more charges could be filed.
