DARTMOUTH — Police in Dartmouth are on the lookout for two suspects who allegedly stole honey and cash from a local farm stand — and, in usual tongue-in-cheek fashion, police drew a parallel with a beloved children's book character who also adores honey.

"DPD is looking for some help from our Hundred Acre Wood friends with identifying this second-rate version of Winnie-The-Pooh and Piglet," reads a Sunday afternoon social media post from the department.

The pair allegedly stole around $100 and some honey from a small farm stand in town recently, police said.

They released a surveillance image of the suspects and their vehicle, which police described as a "sweet chariot" that belongs to one of their teenage sisters or daughters.

Anyone with information on the suspects' identity is asked to message or call Detective Kyle "Christopher Robin" Costa at 508-910-1755, the department stated.
