Burglar Runs Afoul of the Law

A pun-filled Facebook post from the Martin County (Florida) Sheriff's Office tells of an investigation into a report of an intruder. A homeowner called and said she returned home from walking her dog and the front door of her house was open. She could hear noises inside, so she called police.

Deputy Becky Brady and Deputy Erick Day entered the home and immediately located the suspect.

Deputy Brady advised that the suspect tried to duck out on her several times, but they were able to apprehend him wihtout ratteling any feathers. Despite a fowl attitude, the univited house guest was released and not charged. Another MCSO case quacked.

Yes, it was a duck. Its motives in the home intrusion were not disclosed. -via Arbroath

"Run Afowl of the Law" was a bad pun said by the driver of our little tour train in Key West. He was talking about the feral chickens that reside there. That's why you do not disturb them.
