Well if this doesn’t go on the list of unusual calls… 🐖 Highland Station received a call reference a pig "the size of a mini horse" 🐷🐴 running around the neighborhood. Deputy Ponce and Deputy Berg found him and due to previous calls, knew where he lived. They lured him back home with @Doritos one of our deputies had in her lunch bag 😋. They made a trail and he followed. “We were able to put him back in and secure the gate. It was fun!” said Deputy Ponce. Crime fighting to safely securing a mini horse sized pig, we do it all 🤷♀️🤷♂️
A couple of sheriff’s deputies knew just what to do when confronted with a giant pig roaming loose in a Highland neighborhood on Saturday. They reached for the Doritos.
Deputies responded to the unusual radio call reporting a swine “the size of a mini horse” roaming loose, San Bernardino County Sheriff’s Department officials said in a written statement.
“Deputy Ponce and Deputy Berg found him and, due to previous calls, knew where he lived,” according to the statement.
The deputies hatched a plan.
“They lured him back home with Doritos one of our deputies had in her lunch bag,” the statement said. “They made a trail and he followed.”
“We were able to put him back in and secure the gate,” Deputy Ponce said. “It was fun!”
