July 7 (UPI) -- Police in Pennsylvania gathered up a flock of delinquent ducks spotted loitering near a local business.

Great Bend Police shared photos of the four white ducks found wandering unsupervised in a county north of Philadelphia after waddling away from their home.

"Ducks in custody? Officer Sheehan took four ducks in custody after they were loitering at the Pump and Pantry in New Milford," police said. "We were able to find the owner to pick them up."

Once the fowl were taken into custody, police called Cindy Osiecki to inform her the pet ducks had gotten themselves into trouble.

"I thought it was funny, I'm like 'are you serious?' There were like 'yeah we took them' because I guess people were trying to take my ducks, and everyone was feeding them, even the cop fed them bread," she said.

Osiecki said the Pump and Pantry was the farthest place her ducks had ever wandered, noting they usually just spend their time swimming in her backyard or loitering at a neighbor's house.
