Is it black magic? Or just a harmless prank against the boys in blue?
Police in Tybee Island, Georgia, are investigating the dumping of a beheaded Voodoo doll and disfigured lizard carcass outside their station.
Lt. Emory Randolph discovered the bizarre offering around 6 a.m. Friday.
“I definitely think there is a pretty dark message involved that somebody is trying to direct at the police department,” Randolph told local ABC-affiliate TV station WJCL. “To have the head pulled off the doll, it’s obviously not a sign of a friendly gesture.”
Police posted photographs of the items to Facebook. “Despite the overwhelming support that we receive on a daily basis, there is the occasional reminder that not everyone likes the police,” the department wrote.
Surveillance cameras captured an unknown man depositing the items on the ground, Police Chief Bob Bryson told the Savannah Morning News. The culprit may face littering charges if he can be identified. Police also want to know the motive behind the stunt.
