Florida Man Takes Swan Dive After Police Follow Telltale Feather Trail

A Florida man is facing a grand theft rap after police followed a feather trail to his home, where a stolen swan was discovered in the suspect’s backyard.

Geoffre Peter Smart, 24, was busted early today by cops after he allegedly took the bird from an Orlando lake. As seen in the above police photo, the hot bird was placed into the back of an Orlando Police Department squad car for the return trip to its watery residence, which is a few blocks from Smart’s home.

Smart, pictured at right, is being held in the Orange County lockup in lieu of $2800 bail.
