LUFKIN, TX (KTRE) - Yard workers are blaming a swarm of yellow jackets for their part in thefts of two chainsaws, according to a Lufkin Police report.
The report states employees of a tree service company were removing trees from a yard on the 500 block of Willow Bend Drive on Sept. 9, around 1:15 p.m., when a swarm of the insects arrived and caused them to run for cover. The employees decided it was a good time to break for lunch and allow the yellow jackets to disperse.
Unfortunately, either the yellow jackets are really strong or a human arrived on the scene and stole two chainsaws.
A complainant reported the thefts on Wednesday.
