In one of the most bizarre crimes that occurred over Halloween weekend, police in the United Kingdom were dispatched when a group of men dressed as traffic cones took their costumes a little too seriously.

ITV reports that Kingston Police sent out a tweet about the incident report early Sunday morning. The report states simply, "males dress as traffic cones, blocking the road like traffic cones."
