A Man Who Stole Dozens of Garden Gnomes Is Now a Fugitive on the Run

Imagine becoming a FUGITIVE because you’re addicted to stealing small, ugly lawn ornaments.  There’s a 44-year-old guy named Barton Bishop in Louisville, Kentucky.  He was arrested back in July for stealing various things, including GARDEN GNOMES from people’s yards.  DOZENS of garden gnomes.


Well, Barton was due in court a few weeks ago to face 67 counts of receiving stolen property, but he never showed.


So now, there’s a warrant out for his arrest, and the Louisville police are looking for help tracking him down.  That’s right:  He’s a wanted man on the run, all over a bunch of gnomes.  Excellent life choice.


(Here’s his mugshot.)
