Duck on the loose

Package thieves are a sad reality nowadays, but this is a novel twist. Police in Red Oak, Texas are asking for the public’s help in identifying and apprehending a man who stole a package from the doorstep of a local residence on June 6 — with the assistance of a duck.

Actually, the duck appears to have only been along for the ride, and none too pleased about it.  Surveillance video shows the thief approaching the door with the duck tucked under his right arm, and quacking non-stop as the thief nabs the package and withdraws.  But not before you hear the man telling the duck to “Come on.”

Anyone with information on the bizarre theft is encouraged to contact Det. Matthew Bratcher at the Red Oak PD.
