A suspicious snowman: Amsterdam police investigate ‘lifeless body’
Police officers on patrol in Amsterdam on Wednesday night thought they had stumbled upon a crime when they encountered a “lifeless body” in the snow. Luckily, this was a crime easily solved: the body was just a rather unconventional snowman.
Freeze! You're under arrest!
On patrol through the Oosterpark, police spotted the snow-covered body and immediately started to wonder: had a crime been committed? Had someone collapsed in the snow? Upon closer inspection, officers discovered this was merely a case of one imaginative member of the public getting rather creative with some snow - carrot and all!
Amsterdam police took to Facebook to share the unusual incident, and were happy to see the humorous side to the near-crime: “After our colleagues approached the ‘body’, they saw that police tape and ambulances would not be needed...it was a good example of getting ‘creative with snow’, including an orange carrot! Either way, the colleagues could laugh about it.”
