Englewood Elementary School kindergarteners are on the lookout for five gingerbread men out on the prowl after escaping the school cafeteria Friday.
Mark Grossenbacher, principal of Englewood Elementary School, described the suspects as 3-feet tall with M&M buttons and Twizzler features.
“It’s a great way for our kindergarteners to get to know our campus and search for clues,” Grossenbacher said. “I solicited the help of parents with the search. Sarasota County Sheriff’s Office is on the case. They were last seen going down W. Perry St.”
Last year, SCSO recovered the gingerbread men and transported them via helicopter.
Grossenbacher said SCSO will provide an update to the case at 10:15 a.m. Wednesday at the school at 150 N. McCall Road, Englewood.
If you happen to see the suspects, approach with caution since they’re considered armed and extremely tasty.
