“Deputy Ponce and Deputy Berg found him and due to previous calls, knew where he lived,” police said on social media.

Armed with a bag of Doritos, the officers made a trail of the tasty tortilla chips in an attempt to lead the massive pork chop back to its home.

“They lured him back home with Doritos one of our deputies had in her lunch bag,” police said. “They made a trail and he followed.”

The officers managed to lure the piggy all the way home.
