Bigfoot blamed for motor home vandalism

LYKENS, Pa., Oct. 22 (UPI) -- A Pennsylvania man whose motor home was damaged by a rock-throwing vandal told police he believes Bigfoot is behind the crime.

Pennsylvania State Police released a complaint Friday saying John Reed, 39, of Lykens, a member of the Lykens Valley Sasquatch Hunters, told troopers earlier this month he caught a glimpse of the late-night vandal and believes the perpetrator to be the legendary ape rumored to wander the wooded areas of North America, The (Harrisburg) Patriot-News reported Monday.

"It wasn't a person. I didn't see any clothes or coat or anything like that," Reed said of the vandal responsible for smashing the windows and taillights of his 1973 Dodge Winnebago. "I don't think it was a bear. It didn't move like a bear."

Dauphin County District Attorney Edward Marsico Jr. said his office would prosecute the Sasquatch if it is captured by authorities.

"We have been searching for him for years," Marsico said with a laugh. "We would be glad to prosecute, assuming the elusive thing is captured."
