Jasper County sheriff's deputies arrested a couple reported to be riding naked on Tuesday morning near Joplin, Missouri, on what proved to be a stolen lawn mower.
“We received a call that there were two individuals driving down the road on a lawnmower naked,” said Jasper County Detective Tim Williams.
Deputies responded at 8:42am to a home with a riding mower parked in the front yard.
Detective Williams said 55-year-old Larry Webster and 40-year-old Tanya Hopper, admitted that they rode the lawn mower home naked after their clothes were stolen while they were skinny dipping in a creek.
Williams said further investigation determined that the lawn mower did not belong to either of them, and they were arrested on suspicion of felony stealing and indecent exposure.
