The lawn workers stated that two blowers were taken without permission. 

INFORMATION REPORT 

A police offer went to check out an abandoned vehicle at the intersection of Mockingbird Lane and Preston Road.

The abandoned vehicle was then towed. As it was being towed, a man ran into the intersection and claimed to be the car's owner. He had run out of fuel and left to get some.
