Greeley day shift officers responded to a missing persons report on Monday, only to discover something very odd was going on.

According to the Greeley Police Department's Facebook page, officers contacted a male near a payphone downtown claiming a "large, green dragon named Bowser had just taken the princess." Upon further questioning, they discovered the man identified as "Mario" had consumed a large quantity of mushrooms. He was arrested without incident.

Mario claims his brother, Luigi, must had planted the mushrooms and suspects he is at large in the Greeley area, perhaps doing some type of plumbing job.

The Greeley Police Department will keep the community updated as to whether or not Luigi is located for questioning via their Facebook page. (Obviously this is a joke.)
