Burglar uses lawn mower as getaway vehicle

There are two things we learned from The Italian Job. 1. Only blow the doors off. 2. A good getaway car is vital.

Alas, Spokane, Washington resident Robert Morey, 22, can't have had the pleasure of Charlie Croker's company as his choice of getaway vehicle was a lawn mower.

Having burgled a home Morey made off with guns and money on a riding mower, chugging 7 miles before ditching his ride when it was out of gas. Police found the 'vehicle' after receiving a call about a suspicious person riding a lawn mower and carrying a shotgun.

Once they found the crim, Morey told cops he had been arguing with his girlfriend and she insisted he get out of the car on "some road." He said he saw an open garage door and took the lawn mower, the firearms and the cash in blind fury.

Morey is being held on multiple charges, including unlawful possession of a firearm, first-degree burglary and theft of a firearm. He admitted stealing the guns because he was prohibited from owning a firearm legally, and he really, really wanted one.
