Two Steal Mower With Intentions To Sell It For Crack

Two Longview men, 29 year old Jason Wigley and 43 year old Abel Barlow are charged with theft today after the two were hauling a new riding lawn mower in a pick-up when a Longview police officer pulled them over for a traffic violation.

Police say Wigley admitted he and Barlow had stolen the lawn mower from a Home Depot, and planned to trade it for crack-cocaine.
