Crime

Sarasota, Florida -- Police have arrested a man who tried to steal a lawnmower by pulling it with his bicycle.

Sarasota Police officers say on Sunday, June 23, a man saw Michael Barwick enter the carport of his neighbor's home. Minutes later, Barwick walked out of the carport pushing a lawnmower. 

Barwick, 53, then tied the lawnmower to a string and attached it to his bicycle. As Barwick biked away, the neighbor called the Sarasota Police Department who caught up with Barwick.

Officers made Barwick return to the scene of the crime where the owner said he did not give Barwick permission to take his lawnmower.
