Surveillance Video Shows Man Allegedly Robbing Home Then Mowing The Victim’s Lawn

Surveillance Video Shows Man Allegedly Robbing Home Then Mowing The Victim’s Lawn

Police are searching for a burglar who was caught on surveillance allegedly stealing from a house before mowing its lawn

Police are searching for a burglar who was caught on surveillance allegedly stealing from a house before mowing its lawn.

On the evening of 1 April, Marcus Renard Hubbard is accused of burgling a home in southeast Texas.

However, in a bizarre turn of events, Hubbard was captured on home CCTV mowing not just the back but also the front of the victim's lawn.

Watch the footage below:

Port Arthur Police Department released the security footage onto Facebook, along with the caption: "On 4/1/2022 Marcus Hubbard was seen on Security video burglarizing a residential building, he removed property from within the building without owners’ consent. He then is seen on Security video mowing the homeowners front and back yard.

"Upon Officers arrival Hubbard is seen running from the area while dragging the lawnmower with him. He abandons the lawnmower in an alley and evades apprehension. Hubbard currently has an outstanding warrant for Burglary of a Building."

However, the post received a baffled response from followers of the account.

"There has to be more to this story. Was he trying to surprise them? Were they away? Is he OCD and could not stand the sight of the lawn? He's so careful- tidy even. Puts the bike aside carefully, the broken fence. Is he some sort of guardian yard angel? I wish I would wake up and find he has done my hedges," one said.

Another wrote: "He has a warrant for mowing a stranger’s lawn…? Tell me you have nothing to do, without telling me you have nothing to do. I’m confused why the owners even called the police. It’s like reporting fraud on your credit card because someone paid off the bill."

"I'd like to give this suspect my address please," a third joked.

"Guess he wanted to make sure it worked before he brought it home lol," one user said.

A final theorised what the suspect could be thinking while on the run. "You will never catch me. I will mow all the yards," they said.

It concluded: "You won't be asked your name and you may be eligible for a CASH reward. You can also make an anonymous tip to Crime Stoppers by downloading the P3 Tips app on your smartphone."
