Public Assistance Requested: Theft of Church Lawnmower


Our office is requesting help from our citizens to identify who might be responsible for the theft of a riding lawnmower. The mower belonged to the Emanuel Baptist Church located at Fishmarket Road and Clear Pond Road in Shawnee.

The mower is described as a Green Craftsman Lawnmower with not other details at this time.  The theft occurred between the hours of 3:45 am and 4:00 am and the suspect(s) were driving the pickup in the picture provided. The suspect(s) cut chains off the outbuildings located on the church property.

Security cameras  captured the vehicle on the property and our office is working with church staff to retrieve that evidence.  This post will be updated with footage at a later date.

If you know who might have been responsible please contact Deputy Anthony Hopkins (405) 273-1727 or email him at deputy.hopkins@pottcoso.com.  You may also contact us here on our website or any of our social media accounts.
