SYRACUSE, New York - Local police are reporting that they have responded to dozens of calls about snowmen being stolen from the front yards of homes in Syracuse.
Officer Sterling Foxfudge, 37, with the SPD stated that in every instance the perps have backed a pickup truck onto the yard, lowered the tailgate, and made off with the snowmen in a matter of two minutes.
Officer Foxfudge commented that the truck tires are wrapped in some kind of plastic wrap and as a result they do not leave any tread marks in the snow.
When asked who in the world would steal snowmen which are virtually worthless, Officer Foxfudge responded by saying that he believes the individuals are part of a local semi-sinister group known as The Syracuse Snowmen Snatchers.
He added that all of the individuals are high school dropouts so they have no jobs and lots of free time to go around acting like a bunch of Justin Biebers.
