JOPLIN, Mo., July 18 (UPI) -- Authorities in Missouri arrested a man and a woman accused of taking a naked ride on a stolen lawn mower in the early morning.
The Jasper County Sheriff's Office said deputies responded to a home located north of Joplin about 8:42 a.m. Tuesday and made contact with a 55-year-old man and a 40-year-old woman inside the house.
The couple told deputies they had been skinny dipping in a creek earlier that morning and they rode the lawn mower home in the nude after their clothes were stolen.
Deputies said the couple were arrested on suspicion of stealing when deputies determined the lawn mower didn't belong to either of them.
The sheriff's office said theft charges are being pursued by the Jasper County prosecutor's office.
