HACKETTSTOWN, N.J. - A 25-year-old woman was seen walking down West Stiger Street in Hackettstown shortly after 2 a.m. Sunday carrying a scarecrow decoration.
But the scarecrow wasn't hers.
Police recognized the decoration belonged to a local business and was supposed to be placed on display at the intersection of Main Street and Grand Avenue for the Hackettstown BID'S Scarecrow Contest, according to a news release from the police department.
Officials approached Amanda Farmer of Hackettstown and through an investigation determined that she took the scarecrow without permission.
Farmer was charged with disorderly conduct and released pending a court appearance.
