Troublemaker ducks in Pennsylvania booked on loitering charges

NEW MILFORD (WNEP) -- It's not too big a shock that police are busy on the night of the Fourth of July, keeping the streets safe, but that doesn't mean they can not have a little fun while doing it.

Four ducks were taken into Great Bend Police custody Tuesday night on the charge of loitering outside a Susquehanna County gas station.

"It's just one Fourth of July no one will ever forget," Cindy Osiecki said.

It was a phone call from police she was definitely not expecting to get.

"I thought it was funny, I'm like 'are you serious?' There were like 'yeah we took them' because I guess people were trying to take my ducks, and everyone was feeding them, even the cop fed them bread," Osiecki said.

The ducks are home safe now with Osiecki and her family. They are back swimming in the creek behind Osiecki's New Milford home along Montrose Street less than a mile from the Pump and Pantry.

"It's not like they wander far from home, that was the first time that I ever saw they went up to the Pump and Pantry because normally they go to my neighbors," Osiecki explained.

Officers posted the pictures to the Great Bend Police Department Facebook page, and the post quickly got almost 300 shares.
