$23,000 of Lawn Care Equipment Stolen from Florida Storage Lot (http://www.lawnandlandscape.com/news/news.asp?ID=4985) - A Cape Coral, Fla. couple is heartbroken as they try to rebuild their lawn care business after they say someone stole their trailer with $23,000 of equipment inside - just one week before Christmas.

"We started on Sunday so we could get things finished by Christmas," said Rachel Blevins of Jarret Manning Lawn Care.

But the head start didn't help Blevins and her boyfriend Jarret Manning. Manning owns the lawn care company. The couple lost two days of work and most of the equipment.

"We lost pretty much everything we have," said Blevins.

They say someone stole their trailer with more the $23,000 worth of equipment inside from a storage lot on Sunday night.

"He went to pick it up Monday and it was missing," said Blevins.

They told police that they signed a contract with the company that stated the gates would stay locked.

Yup I still have insurance. I was thinking about dropping it the other day just to decrease the insurance cost, but figured saving $100 a year would not be worth it
