Social media is not happy with the 200 or so individuals who decided to treat Reesor’s Farm in Markham like it was their own public park on Thanksgiving Monday.
The farm, situation on Elgin Mills Road, was closed for the stat holiday, but that didn’t stop people from parking on the side of the road and trespassing on private property, despite signage and barriers suggesting that the business was not open.
Police received reports that visitors snapped photos, entered the closed corn maze, and even took pumpkins without paying for them.
It is believed that most of the trespassers did not realize the farm was closed, but does that absolve everyone of wrongdoing?
Jay Reesor, the farm’s owner, took to the business’ Facebook page to explain just how this situation started, and vented his frustrations with how everything unfolded. He called out the 200 individuals for following the actions of others without asking questions:
Should charges be laid if York Regional Police catch up with some of the visitors who stole a pumpkin or two?
