A suspicious looking oak leaf was found in the historic section of Forestville yesterday. Police responded around 1 p.m. to 911 calls about a suspicious leaf by neighborhood residents. “We thought it odd that an oak leaf would just show up on its own because there are no oak trees in this neighborhood,” said Cookie Genison, who owns a home in the area.
Investigators are still interviewing eyewitnesses and gathering physical evidence at the scene about the rogue leaf. Anyone with information regarding the oak leaf is asked to call the Forestville Police Department.
This comes on the heels of a suspicious looking Ziploc sandwich bag that was found on the side of the road near Broad Street last week.
The empty 6×5 inch clear plastic bag was seen by motorists and pedestrians suspiciously tumbling across the road before settling near a curb. The Major Crimes Unit and the Police Tactical Unit were dispatched and determined after taking X-rays that the zipper storage bag was non-threatening.
Police are at this moment are attempting to determine the owner of the sandwich bag so they can return it to them.
