GEORGE COUNTY, MS (WLOX) -

What started as a deputy checking on a truck in a ditch, ended with three arrests and stolen county property recovered.

George County Sheriff Keith Havard said one of his deputy's spotted a truck and a trailer stuck in a ditch on Highway 26 early Wednesday morning. A lawn mower was loaded onto the trailer.

"The deputy stopped to question these occupants in the truck, when he noticed lawn mower tracks leading back to the Beat 4 County Barn," said Sheriff Havard.

It was later determined that the lawn mower belonged to the George County Board of Supervisors.

Buford McLaurin, 34 of Gulfport, Alicia Carmack, 30 of Gulfport, and Eric Hunter, 36, of Greenville, were arrested at the scene. All three are charged with grand larceny. The suspects are being held at the George County Regional Correctional Facility awaiting court appearances.
