The Queensland Times is reporting that Neil Dupre, 57, was caught stealing a “well-used” Victa lawn mower in the yard of a business Auto Care Ipswich in Australia.
Unknowingly to the culprit, his 4 a.m. heist was captured by security cameras, according to the article.
Police prosecutor, Sergeant Paul Caldwell told Ipswich Magistrates Court that Dupre was able to maneuver the stolen mower over a fence and into his vehicle.
Sgt Caldwell said he’d gone on some back roads and was driving toward Brisbane when he was intercepted by police at Bundamba.
Dupre pleaded guilty to trespassing and stealing. He has been placed on a $400 good behavior bond for four months.
