OCALA, Fla., Nov. 21 (UPI) -- A Florida woman said her Thanksgiving turkey is being carefully guarded after the first turkey she got was stolen from the freezer in her garage.

Joyce Romer of Marion County told Marion County Sheriff's deputies she obtained the first 12.5 pound turkey Friday and she and her husband discovered Monday morning it had been stolen from their garage freezer, The (Ocala, Fla.) Star-Banner reported Wednesday.

"I asked (my husband) to go get the turkey so we could start thawing it out," Romer said. "He was gone for the longest time and finally he came in and asked, 'Where'd you put the thing?'"

"I guess somebody was hungry," Romer said. "The odd thing is, they didn't take any of the beer that was out there."

Romer said she bought a fresh turkey to serve Thursday and she is keeping a close eye on the bird until Thanksgiving dinner.
