Police: Gardener says men rammed his car, stole trimmer

Police continued the search Tuesday for two men they believe rammed another gardener’s vehicle in Costa Mesa and possibly stole his lawn trimmer.

A 42-year-old gardener told police he saw a 1990s Ford Explorer driving slowly next to him about 10:15 a.m. Monday along Gleneagles Terrace and Aviemore Terrace, said Costa Mesa police Sgt. Phil Myers.

He followed the Explorer and tried to block it, which is when he told police the suspects rammed his vehicle.

The victim later noticed his lawn trimmer was missing.


The two suspects are described as between 25 and 30 years old. The suspects’ vehicle was last seen heading eastbound on Victoria Street.
