YORK, Pa. (AP) — A thief has returned a 100-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 (http://bit.ly/16pZ6hd ) 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."
