Delaware County police searching for pumpkin-throwers

    Culprits in Nether Providence got it all wrong. Punkin’ Chunkin’ is in Novemeber and it’s in Delaware, not Delaware County.

    That didn’t stop them from throwing a pumpkin into the windshield of an oncoming car early last month on Baltimore Pike. The Delaware County Times reports a $500 reward is being offered for help identifying the suspects who threw the pumpkin from a speeding car, crashing through a moving vehicle’s windshield and hitting the victim in the face.

    Other pumpkin-throwing incidents have been reported in nearby municipalities.
