Tires and wheels, even lawnmowers on wish list as area thieves back in action

Lawmen knew it was coming. A full moon this past week and all the heat - it was bound to happen. And this week it did - after weeks of relative quiet on the crime front, all heck broke loose across the county. The usual number of wrecks were accompanied by a handful of oilfield thefts. Then mix in somebody going around stealing lawnmowers in Stanton. Yep, lawnmowers. Stanton Police Department got several calls for thefts of lawn and garden equipment.
