A thief usually comes armed with a high-speed getaway car to leave the scene of the crime, but police said a suspect in Knoxville, Tennessee used a lawnmower for his getaway. Knoxville police said Benny Vaughn broke into a woman’s shed to steal the mower, which is worth about $1,800. The woman said Vaughn cut open her shed, causing hundreds of dollars in damage. She said he crawled inside and busted the doors open to get the mower out. Vaugh then used the John Deere as his getaway car. The woman’s neighbor trailed the suspect several miles down the street while taking pictures. The lawnmower can even be seen with a flat tire. Vaughn was arrested and police say he also faces a list of crimes from theft to assault, some of them dating back to 1992. (https://goo.gl/e7w1rt)
