Murfreesboro Police are investigating a case involving a stolen tiller.

Property Crimes Detectives report the theft occurred behind a business in the 500 block of West Burton Street on October 7th.

To transport the awkwardly large and heavy piece of garden equipment, the unknown men are believed to have first taken it from behind the business and relocate it to a nearby area. Later, the men returned to pick-up the carefully placed Weed Eater brand Rear Tine Tiller.

When the men made the return trek to pick up the tiller, investigators say they showed up in a small red four-door sedan. After loading the tiller into what looked to be a Nissan, they drove away.

The good news is that the tiller has since been recovered and returned to its rightful owner, the bad news is that the two culprits who stole the tiller have yet to be identified.
