Street sweeper truck an unusual joyride

Authorities in Hamilton County, Ohio, allege a 46-year-old man stole a street sweeper from a company in Lockland, Ohio.

The Cincinnati Enquirer reported Monday county court records said Ohio resident Gregory Shanks allegedly stole the large vehicle from Contract Sweepers and Equipment last week.

The street sweeper was outside an apartment complex where Shanks lives following last Friday's theft, records say.

Specific details regarding the theft were not reported. The Enquirer said Shanks faces a single felony count of theft in the incident.
