Guy Used a Riding Mower as His Getaway Car During a Robbery Spree


This crime spree isn't fast OR furious at all. Like, what's even the point then?

There's a 54-year-old guy named James Harrington in Waterloo, Iowa. And he went on a burglary spree a few weeks ago . . . where he used a John Deere riding lawnmower as his getaway car.

Those top out somewhere between seven and 10 miles-an-hour.

First, James rode his mower to a garage and stole a bunch of stuff inside. Then he headed to a convenience store and stole a bottle of Absolut vodka.

He even managed to get home on the mower without getting caught . . . but the cops identified him from surveillance footage and arrested him.

He's been charged with burglary, theft, and driving with a suspended license.
