Who dumped hundreds of pounds of cooked pasta by a N.J. creek — and why?

A MARTÍNEZ, HOST:

Good morning. I'm A Martínez.

It might be cloudy with a chance of meatballs for residents of Old Bridge Township, N.J., after hundreds of pounds of cooked pasta popped up by a creek. No one knows how the noodles got there. Got to wonder if the Flint Lockwood diatonic, super-mutating, dynamic food replicator went rogue again. Anyways, public works removed the pasta and got rid of the garbage near the stream. One local called the cleanup "Mission Impastable" (ph).
