On another note, have you seen the Elf on the Shelf? According to Captain McCoy of Fulshear PD, the elf was apprehended and charged with criminal mischief in November of this year. He somehow escaped police custody and was picked up a few days later. Of course, he bonded out of jail and he's been on the run ever since.

Our fugitive has been on the run for 120 minutes. Average foot speed over uneven ground, barring injuries, is 2 miles per hour. That gives us a radius of four miles. What I want from each and every one of you is a hard-target search of every gas station, residence, candy store, warehouse, farmhouse, henhouse, outhouse and doghouse in that area. Checkpoints go up to five miles. Your fugitive's name is Elf, Elf on the Shelf.- Fulshear Police Department

The Elf is described as 12 inches tall and .5 pounds, with brown hair and black eyes. Residents should never attempt to apprehend a fugitive themselves. Anyone with information on the whereabouts of the Elf on the Shelf can head over to the Fulshear PD Facebook page and post pictures.
