Good grief! Bill Teer lost something from his front yard. Something large. Very, very large: his prized 450 lb. pumpkin!
Teer thinks a group of three teenagers drove up on Halsey Road and managed to roll the pumpkin into the back of their pickup truck. The reward is now up to $200.
"I think they absolutely planned it," said neighbor Don Simons. Simons pitched in half the reward money. "We hope we catch these people," he said. "There was a prior attack on the pumpkin a year or two ago. Somebody jumped out with a hammer and punched some holes in one of them."
Meanwhile, police are baffled. "Who knows what they want with it or what they did with it," Simons said.
Maybe it's for a really, really big pumpkin pie! http://abclocal.go.com/wjrt/story?section=news/local&id=6428242

And I hope that those teenagers won't do what we were doing with old Halloween pumpkins... throwing them down a steep road. Yea we were bad, but that was hilarious :)
