JOPLIN, Mo. (AP) - Authorities have arrested a couple accused of riding naked on a stolen lawn mower in Missouri.

Jasper County sheriff's Det. Tim Williams said a 55-year-old man and a 40-year-old woman admitted that they rode the lawn mower home naked after their clothing was stolen while they skinny dipped in a creek northwest of Joplin.

The Joplin Globe (http://bit.ly/29N2kIe ) reports that authorities arrested the pair Tuesday morning on suspicion of stealing after finding them at a house with the riding mower parked in the front yard.

Williams says an investigation determined that the lawn mower didn't belong to either of them.
