Police are investigating the thefts of lawn equipment from two Center Grove area homes.
The thefts were reported hours apart Thursday night in Carefree South and Southwind, both located off Smith Valley Road, west of State Road 135.
A resident in the 100 block of Meander Way reported just after 5 p.m. a lawnmower and weed eater were stolen from a shed. The resident believed the theft had happened sometime in the last week, according to a Johnson County Sheriff’s Office report.
A second resident in the 200 block of Lake Drive called just before 8 p.m. to report a lawnmower had been stolen from her garage, according to the report.
One of the residents of the home had seen a gray truck in the neighborhood with lawnmowers earlier that day, the report said.
The sheriff’s office is asking residents to pay attention to what is going on in their neighborhood and report anything suspicious.
