With the recent heavy rains in the area people will be out working in their yards, mowing grass and trimming hedges. Sometimes unattended lawn equipment can make for an attractive target for a criminal. To help reduce the risk of theft secure your equipment when not in use. If you are using it keep it within eyesight because it only takes a few seconds for a criminal to take advantage of the situation and walk away with your property. Also take pictures of the equipment and record serial numbers in the event of a theft.
