Stolen Penguin Bin Returned

The Penguin Post has learned that a talking penguin garbage bin that was stolen from Bourne Outdoor Pool in Bourne, England has been found and returned to the charity. The missing bin was first spotted by two people on Saturday on grassland near The Ridings in Elsea Park in Bourne, but by the time police had arrived the bin had already been removed. However it was later discovered on the remains of the old railway bridge off Raymond Mays Way by two BRM Day committee members Richard Bostock and Anthony Delaine-Smith, when they were completing an inspection of the southern park and ride car park side for the groups event on October 7. They were alerted to its location by a passing dog walker. The bin, worth about £450, was taken from the pool on the Abbey Lawn, which is a registered charity, on Friday night last week. Richard said: “It was a little difficult to explain to the Lincolnshire Police Control Room that we had found a missing Penguin, “I suppose it is not everyday that they have phone calls like that.”
