Man Drags Stolen Parking Meter

A few weeks ago, I noticed a missing parking meter on Canal St, with a dirt trail from it leading up the street. It seemed very curious; not something sanctioned by the town, so I decided to check my security footage to see if I could find when it happened it. Sure enough, I found it, right around 2am a few days after the 4th.

Some guy came up to it, rocked it back and forth, and ripped it right from the ground. Left the scene when a dog walker approached, but came back around 25 minutes later wearing a headlamp. Grabbed it, and dragged it up Canal St until dissapearing from view. It was pretty hilarious. Must have been noisy, I'm surprised no one saw it.
