YORK, PA ?  A thief has returned a 255-pound pumpkin that a central Pennsylvania boy won by correctly guessing its weight ? along with a note apologizing for the theft.

Nine-year-old Jaiden Newcomer of York won the pumpkin at an Oktoberfest celebration in Windsor Township. He had displayed the giant pumpkin on his family's porch until it was stolen last week.

But the York Dispatch reports the pumpkin was back on the family's porch Sunday evening after it returned from a weekend trip.

The thief also left a note saying: "I'm really sorry about taking your pumpkin, it was wrong of me, you earned the pumpkin, I didn't think my actions through nor realize who they were affecting. Sincerest apologies."

Amy Newcomer says her son is "very excited. He's beside himself."

I wonder if the thief will think twice next time he's tempted to steal something?

Why the hell would someone want to steal a 255lb pumpkin, and how is it even possible without getting noticed?

They probably stole it the same way they steal any other large, heavy object. When nobody is looking, typically at nighttime.

 

WHY they would steal a 255 pound pumpkin, I don't know.

I guess he felt bad stealing it from a kid. Most people would.

He probably stashed it in a nearby bush, then rolled it back the next night when he couldnt get his buddies to help him move it..

Shouldn't it now be locked away in evidence?
