50 pine cones stuffed into engine compartment of vehicle in Troy

Troy Yes, but did the car have that fresh pine scent?

Apparently someone with grudge went a little squirrelly recently and sabotaged a car by stuffing more than 50 pine cones into the engine compartment.

The same person also drained the vehicle of all its oil. When the owner attempted to start the vehicle, it overheated and melted the fuse box.

According to the Troy Police Department, the incident occurred sometime between May 31 and June 1 when the car was parked overnight in the lot of the Troy Community Center, located in the 3100 block of Livernois.

Rocket J. Squirrel is not a suspect in the case.
