Middletown police help recover 5 sheep that fell off truck

Anyone who looked into a Middletown police cruiser Sunday night probably thought they were seeing things.

But it actually was a sheep sitting in the back of the cruiser, his nose sticking through the metal bars.

Middletown police were called at 5:19 p.m. Sunday on a report that five sheep had fallen out of a truck that was traveling in the 1700 block of Central Avenue, said Maj. Scott Reeve.

While no police report was filed with more information, Reeve said he believes all the sheep were recovered.
