Scarecrows Stolen from Piedmont Front Yards

Thefts Plagued the Start of Halloween Week –

Harvest Festival scarecrows


PCA has received reports of five, life-size artistic, handmade scarecrows disappearing from front yards in the nights leading up to Halloween.

Four had been purchased at the Harvest Festival scarecrow auction that raises money for the schools each September.  The scarecrow display and auction is a popular part of Piedmont’s annual harvest celebration.  All the scarecrows are handmade, many by students as classroom projects.  One of the stolen scarecrows was a family project for three little boys and their parents– a masterpiece, with doorknobs for eyes.
