TANEYTOWN, Md. – For once, it’s not a Florida man making headlines and shaking heads around the country.

In this edition of weird news, we go to Taneytown, Maryland. It’s a small city located in the northwest corner of the state. According to the 2010 census, Taneytown has a population of 6,728.

Now at least one of those 6,728 people is being called out.

Tuesday night the Taneytown Police Department posted on social media reminding residents to put on pants before checking the mail. In its apparent final warning, the department also wrote: “You know who you are."

Please remember to put pants on before leaving the house to check your mailbox. You know who you are. This is your final warning.
