Riverside County Sheriff seeks help identifying mischievous elves who snuck into office

As originally shared by the Riverside County Sheriff’s Department.

Twas the 1st of December and in Sheriff’s Administration, the Christmas tree was up and it was time for celebration! 🎄

Sheriff Chad Bianco walked into his office and was met with a surprise: two grinning elves atop his desk. Who are these little guys?! 🤷🏻‍♂️  

He couldn’t put his finger on it, but there was something sneaky about this pair. 🤔 “Okay, you two, get outta here. You’re sitting in my chair!”  

As they pranced out of the office, they left behind a note. 📝 The Sheriff called for backup when he read what these two wrote.  

“Merry Christmas, Sheriff! We’re the elves of Riverside County. When you see the stunts we’re about to pull, you’ll probably put out a bounty.  

But never fear, our shenanigans are all just in good fun. Let’s see if you can catch us both before December’s done!” 🎅🏻🎄    

Now Sheriff Bianco needs help naming these two elves, whose names the note did not show. Then wish the Sheriff luck in finding them, as they’re already on the go!  

To help Sheriff Bianco name this mischievous pair, visit the Riverside County Sheriff’s Department on Facebook and leave a boy’s and girl’s name in the comments!
