Man charged in theft of lawn tractor

AUSTINTOWN

A Boardman man is charged with breaking and entering in the theft of an 82-year-old Austintown man’s tractor.

Matthew Pupio, 28, was charged after a neighbor saw him attempting to steal the lawn equipment at 6:15 p.m. on Sept. 12 from the front yard of the Nottingham Avenue home.

The neighbor told police he approached Pupio about taking the lawn equipment and he said he was given permission to take it, according to the report.

The neighbor still took down a license plate number and informed his neighbor about the incident.

When police arrived, the lawn mower was still there but a tractor had been taken from a shed.

The owner told police he gave no one permission to take items from his property.

The man was tracked down by police and told officers the man’s caretaker gave him permission to take the equipment. The lawn mower would not fit in the truck, which is why it was left behind.

The items were going to be sold to a thrift store.

Pupio faces arraignment at 1 p.m. Monday in Austintown court. He is in the Mahoning County jail.
