Tyler Harris said after someone stole his truck and trailer filled with mowing equipment he can't cut his own lawn. More importantly, as the owner of T-Town Lawn Care he can't cut the lawns of all of his customers. 

As a small lawn care business, his work truck, trailer and the equipment inside of it is the entire business.

Now, Harris is offering free lawn care for a year to the person who can help him get back all of his missing equipment and trailer.

Harris said someone stole the truck and equipment near 31st and Harvard in Tulsa on Friday. He was talking with a customer in the customer's backyard. Out front the keys were inside the truck, but he locked the doors and had the remote opener in his pocket. 

After he reported the crime to Tulsa Police on Friday, someone spotted his company's truck near the intersection of Archer and New Haven. He headed there and found his truck, but his trailer and equipment were gone.

The truck, trailer and mowers totaled more than $50,000. In a Facebook post Harris forgave the person who took his equipment and said he just wants everything back so he can return to work. He said the small business is how he supports his family of six children. 

Here are the items Harris said were in the trailer:

  • 30" TORO commercial turf master self propelled mower - Serial number: 313004222
  • 48" TORO Z3000 series zero turn mower - Serial number: 314000327-315000107
  • SHINDAIWA 24cc trimmer - Serial number: T16212049536
  • SHINDAIWA 24cc trimmer - Serial number: T16212052890
  • ECHO 63.3CC heavy duty backpack blower - Serial number: P02912054031
  • ECHO attachment trimmer - Serial number: unknown

The trailer is 16 foot dark blue basket trailer, Harris said. There is a blower cage and trimmer rack on the driver side, gas tank on the passenger side, spare tire holder with a spare tire mount on the inside of the trailer by the blower cage. Most of the equipment has some sort of T-Town Lawn Care logo on it.
