BREAKING: Hedgehog Pumpkin Thief Caught
by Scott Friedstein, FluffPo Correspondent
Citizens of Derry, NH can rest easy this week – the culprit attempting to ruin their Fall fun has finally been apprehended. Calico the hedgehog had been wanted in connection with a string of pumpkin thefts over the past month.
“We caught him in the act,” says Officer Ron Gooden. “He was at a patch on Elm trying to make off with a few gourds. We don’t know what he could have wanted them for; there may have been a black market operation.”
The hedgehog is expected to be formally charged Tuesday.
“People are pretty relieved,” says Gooden. “I’m just glad it wasn’t Pumpkin Spice Lattes, that’d be a whole other story.”
