The Vermilion Parish Sheriff's Office investigating a burglary at the home of an Army soldier.
The incident took place Saturday just before 11 a.m.
According to the soldier, three men stole a riding lawn mower from his yard. Video surveillance shows the three men trying to put the transmission in neutral so they could roll it onto a trailer. When that failed, the burglars lifted the mower and carried it onto the trailer.
The soldier says he purchased the $3,000 riding mower in June after burglars stole another mower he owned.
If you have any information about this burglary, call the Vermilion Parish Sheriff's Office at 337-898-4409.
