Leave it to the UK to crank out awesome headlines like “Gnomes in police custody after night-time adventure.”
Apparently, someone was driving around the Banff area with 33 gnomes and some other miscellaneous lawn ornaments in the back of a van. The driver was pulled over (for some reason?) and the gnomes were identified as those belonging to residents of the Aberdeenshire area.
What a joyride!
Scotland’s favorite schoolboy, Oor Wullie, was joyriding along with the renegade gnomes as well. A schoolboy….what fun! The gnomes are believed to have been taken from local residences between Wednesday and Thursday this week.
If you’re missing a gnome or know someone who is, The Courier newspaper may be able to get you reconnected. Send an email over to [email protected]. The police could probably use a little help reuniting gnomes with gnome owners too, if you could lend a helping hand.
Keep in mind, this is BREAKING NEWS and we don’t have the full details of the story yet.
- Who IS the driver of the van?
- What IS his/her connection to the gnome community?
- Where were they all going on that joyride?
- Were the gnomes kidnapped or did they leave their homes willingly?
You’d better bet our gnome sleuths are on the case. Tip us off if you hear anything!
