LOUISVILLE, Ky. (WDRB) -- A Canadian couple was surprised to find out a squirrel was not the one stealing their tomatoes.

Paula and her husband say their tomatoes started disappearing in late June.

They blamed the theft on a hungry squirrel -- until their security camera caught their mailman helping himself to the tomatoes and some strawberries.

Paula says she isn't mad -- as long as the mailman replaces the plants or brings by a strawberry pie or tomato sauce, all will be forgiven.
