WANTED: Punxsutawney Phil for Deception

After yet another Nor' Easter slammed the Northeast this late in March, one sheriff's office decided as a joke to put out an APB for Punxsutawney Phil's arrest! 

Punxsutawney Phil is wanted for deception by the Monroe County Sheriff's Office in Pennsylvania. They shared the wanted poster seen below to their Facebook page, where it went viral and is being shared all across the country. However, they actually have this poster hanging on their warrant wall in the police station as well!  


The Wanted Sign reads: 

The Monroe Country Sheriff's Office is seeking the apprehension of Punxsutawney Phil for deception. On February 2nd, 2018, Punxsutawney Phil promised that there would be 6 more weeks of winter. That promise expired on March 16th. We are now on the 2nd day of Spring and we are in the middle of yet another snowstorm. Any positive information, please call Monroe County Sheriff's Office.

We're thinking he might've escaped to Palm Beach County until the Summer, but can you blame him? 


Anyway, this sheriff's office means business so if you have any information on the groundhog fugitive, you might want to reach out right away! LOL.
