An unidentified flying object of sorts was found in pieces two miles outside Roswell, New Mexico—after some teens swiped it from a local museum. According to the Roswell Police Department, three teens swiped the decoration from the UFO Museum & Research Center on March 19. It had just been repaired following damage caused by a snow storm. Police released surveillance video, and a 17-year-old was arrested in connection with the theft on Saturday, UPI reports. Police are looking for the other two teens seen in the video. Government agents still don't know why the teens stole the UFO or why they destroyed it—at least that's what they want us to think. (More weird crimes stories.)
