June 8 (UPI) — Police in New Jersey said a pig dubbed “Pork Roll” after being found wandering outside a Dunkin Donuts was taken “into custody for questioning.”
The Neptune Township Police Department said an officer responded to a report of a pig running loose near the local Dunkin Donuts and the officer quickly located and apprehended the pig, which the department dubbed Pork Roll.
“Yes, we at the Neptune Township Police Department are well aware of the irony, but this is the truth,” the department quipped in a Facebook post detailing the pig call.
The post said the pig was taken “into custody for questioning” and police provided their porcine prisoner “with a job application as our new mascot.”
The pig was turned over to the Monmouth County SPCA, which was able to reunite the swine with its owner.
