Kansas City, KS-Imagine waking up and finding your entire car covered in sticky notes. Well, that’s exactly what happened to one Kansas City police officer.
In 20 years of working with the Kansas City, Kansas Police Department, Detective Stuart Littlefield admits he's probably been a bit of a prankster and a rebel-rouser with many of his police officer friends.
Payback came on Tuesday morning, the morning of his 50th birthday, when he arrived for work; Littlefield says he found his Wyandotte County-issued police car, covered with 4,000 Post-It notes, a birthday prank from his co-workers.
“I can't tell you exactly what I said, but the gist is, 'Golly, they got me,” he said.
The entire frame of Littlefield's car was covered with Post-it notes, the same kind that are used for short memos.
“I have to say that I deserve this. (laughs) I have always been the guy who stirs the pot within the unit. I'm the first to cause trouble,” said Littlefield.
And no one's claiming the prank. Yellow, blue and pink papers were all over his police car, which normally looks like any Ford Taurus you might see on the street.
“Yup, they got me good this time. This was supposed to be a low-key birthday. When you're 50, you don't want anyone to know about it. That kind of blew up in my face,” said Littlefield. "Creative is a word. I can think of another word I can't say on camera since we're talking to the public."
As for whoever's behind the prank, Littlefield says once he finds out, payback is coming.
