Police in Old Bridge in Middlesex County are looking for the perpetrator of this petty pasta crime.

Even though the more than 300 pounds of pasta that were left in the woods were COOKED, and biodegradable, it's got to still be considered illegal dumping.

Public Works was reportedly notified by resident Nina Jochnowitz and the mess was cleaned up, according to People.com.

But what I really want to know is how the person responsible GOT that much pasta there in the first place. Stay tuned.
