Tractor joyride not funny

A John Deere lawnmower that was taken out for an unlawful spin is no laughing matter, Saanich Police say.

A John Deere riding lawnmower that hits a top speed of 7 km/h was stolen from the Gordon Head Baseball shed at Lambrick Park some time after the work day July 9 and driven to the school yard at Torquay Elementary.

The mower left donut tracks in the grass and struck two goal posts during the unlawful escapade, say police.

The mower was found at the school by district staff Wednesday morning.

There was some minor damage to the mower, valued at $3,000, but it was drivable.

Under police escort, it was driven back to Lambrick Park.

The thief committed crimes of theft and mischief, said police.
