Johnson City police arrested two people Wednesday on charges that they stole a riding lawnmower and other property when they burglarized a storage building.

James Scott Vanhoy, 42, 1519 Sylvan Drive, and Trula McBee, 31, 2207 Indian Ridge Road, No. 5, were charged with burglary and theft of property over $1,000.
