WATERBURY, Vt. -- A prisoner prank has Vermont State Police working to correct decals that were placed on the doors to around 30 of their cruisers.
According to State Police, the decals were subtly altered to include an image of a pig, placed in the spots of the cow commonly seen on the sides of the cars.
The decals are made by the Vermont Correctional Industries Print Shop, which is staffed by state inmates.
State Police were told of the altered decals when a Trooper noticed the pig on some cruisers' doors. They will be removed from the cars as soon as possible, but state police say it will cost Vermont residents.
"While some may find humor in the decal modifications, the joke unfortunately comes at the expense of the tax payers," Major Bill Sheets is quoted as saying in a statement.
Police are investigating those responsible for the changes, and say the print shop is working on creating new, correct decals.
