One resident of the area found the giant snapping turtle in her driveway and upon discovering it, called the Westminster Police Department. After arriving on the scene, the officer decided to leave the turtle alone but later received another call from two doors down, reporting that the turtle had mosied into their driveway.
Following this little galavant from house to house, officers decided to relocate the turtle after all, especially after realizing what the turtle was up to.
