TOLEDO, Ohio — Police here were trying to figure out who put a burning pickle jar on the mayor's front lawn.

Mayor Carty Finkbeiner's wife woke up early Wednesday and spotted the flaming jar in front of the house. They doused the flames with water. The mayor had no idea who did it.

A similar burning jar was found a couple of miles away on the lawn of another city employee.

Officers have increased surveillance at the mayor's house.
