Jones County Sheriff's stolen lawnmower recovered

Jones County Sheriff Alexd Hodge has his lawn mower back, but now he's looking for the guy who stole it.

The $9,000 dollar mower was stolen earlier this week from Hodge's home. After WDAM aired the Crimestoppers story Thursday, Derrick Taylor, the suspected thief, called the sheriff and told him where he could find his mower.

The only problem was that Taylor sold it for $1,300 dollars to a man in Alabama. To make matters worse, Taylor said he had already spent the money.

Hodge made contact with the buyer, and they met in Lucedale where Hodge got his mower back. Now, the man is out $1,300 dollars, and Taylor is still on the loose.
