Marion Police issued a warrant for KCRG-TV9 First Alert Meteorologist Kaj O'Mara for stealing spring.

Police served the warrant Wednesday morning at KCRG-TV9 studios, just as O'Mara wrapped up a forecast calling for 2-6 inches of snow in eastern Iowa.

Police led Kaj away in handcuffs but later released him on the promise of a warmer forecast and 9-days without snow.

*Editor's note: this was a prank by the newsroom with the Marion police and was not an actual arrest.*
