News – “They thought a squirrel was eating their tomatoes. But it was the mailman”

cnn.com – (CNN)When their tomatoes began disappearing, a family in Montreal assumed it was the work of a squirrel. But when they checked their security camera, they saw the tomato thief was none other than their mailman.

Now, they want an apology.
Rob Morin told CNN that he and his wife regularly grow fruit in hanging baskets outside their home in the Mount Royal neighborhood and said he expected the culprit to be a squirrel.
“Each year we hang out tomatoes and strawberries in front of our house,” Morin told CNN. “This year after many were ripe, we noticed they were going missing. We first thought it was the squirrels, but normally the squirrels leave a mess and there was not a mess on the ground where the plants were.”
After wondering where his produce was going for weeks, Morin’s home’s security camera cracked the case: It had been the mailman all along.
“For fun we check our security cameras and spotted, on many occasions, our postman helping himself to our tomatoes and strawberries,” Morin said.
Canada Post did not respond to CNN’s request for comment, but told CNN news partner CTV News that they are aware of the case and have spoken with the family. CNN has blurred the man’s face in the photo, as he has not been named.

Now, they want an apology.
The Squirrel in question demands a damn apology also! Little homie was just minding it’s business doing squirrel shit and he gets accused of theft, when the whoooolleee time it was that sneaky sneaky mailman. ‘
But forreal I can see grabbing one or two tomatoes and strawberries every once in awhile but to consistently help yourself is a bold bold move, and he woulda got away with it too if it wasn’t for pesky technology.
