• Pumpkins Smashed


    PASADENA (CNS) – Someone smashed and damaged several competition-worthy pumpkins that were growing in the front yard of a 93-year-old woman in an unincorporated area near Pasadena, a sheriff’s deputy said today.

    The pumpkins, which were growing in the 800 block of Gainsborough Drive, were smashed and punctured late Thursday night or early this morning, said Los Angeles County sheriff’s Deputy Kim Manatt.

    “I loved all my pumpkins and they were really pretty. How can somebody be so destructive,” grower Mae Powell told KCAL9.

    Four of the pumpkins, including one weighing 75 pounds, were smashed and a 300-pound pumpkin was punctured with two decorative umbrellas.

    Powell was going to enter the pumpkins in a competition in Irvine, KCAL9 reported.

    She is offering a $1,000 reward for information leading to the arrest and conviction of whoever vandalized the produce.

    A 90- to 100-pound pumpkin in her garage was undamaged.

    Powell says she will plant more pumpkins next year.

    Anyone with information about the vandalism was asked to call the sheriff’s Temple Station at (626) 285-7171.
