Crime in Erie

This was the FIRST item in the Police Blotter of our local newspaper. Obviously crime is a serious issue in our little town:
A man called Erie POlicy at about 8:30p.m., Wednesday, March 7, to report a suspicious peanut in his back yard.

The man told police he just wanted to document the incident at his home in the [local development].

No further information was available.
A suspicious peanut? I mean, can you imagine the poor officer having to respond to that without laughing hysterically? What could possibly be suspicious about a peanut? "Well, officer, it seemed to be....lurking."
