NEPTUNE TOWNSHIP -

Police in Neptune Township say they found a lost pet pig wandering near a local Dunkin' Donuts, who they nicknamed "Pork Roll."

According to police Wednesday, they received a call over the recent holiday weekend concerning a pig wandering around the store.

The department jokes an officer was able to "catch the well-fed hog and take him into custody for questioning and to provide him with a job application as our new mascot" before taking him to the Monmouth County Society for the Prevention of Cruelty to Animals.

Police officers nicknamed the pig "Pork Roll" between catching him and delivering him to the SPCA.

Officials say Pork Roll’s owner was later able to pick him up.

AP wire services helped contribute to this report.
