What a difference a few days makes, Curtis Bryant all smiles today. It was a much different story when we introduced him to you on Tuesday -- his lawn blower and gas tanks stolen by thieves as he was mowing grass.

After his story aired -- we put him in touch with people wanting to help.

"Somebody called me and said he had some stuff I might could use... I told him yeah," said Bryant.

That somebody was a fellow small time landscaper -- John Holladay -- donating a blower and much more.

"He gave me a steel weed eater, trimmers right there, and a pole saw, and a hedger, and a blower. He gave me a full set up for my lawn job," said Bryant. "When he first seen me ... When he gout out of the truck, he said when I seen you on TV -- that's me -- same thing happened to me. And he said now I can help somebody else."

Even though there are some who choose a life of crime, the generosity has renewed Bryant's faith in people and is more than enough to get him back in business.

"I appreciate it. I appreciate it very much -- even gave me money, gave me some gas money to get going... That doesn't happen to you every day. You got some good people out there," said Bryant.

Meanwhile, if you know who these guys are or recognize the blue Dodge with a silver stripe on the bottom -- call Mobile Police.

Also, if you have video of someone "Caught In The Act" -- email it to us at We may show it in our newscast.
