Three members of the Southbury Police Department got into a messy situation over the weekend--for a good cause. They participated in the 4th annual pie eating contest, hosted by Leo’s Restaurant, to raise money for the Children’s Tumor Foundation. Corporal Armeno, Officer Alfano and Officer Pierce participated. Diane Owens, who coordinated the event, says it's held in honor of her son, Alex, who was diagnosed with neurofibromatosis in 2013. NF is a genetic mutation that causes tumors to grow along any nerve in the body, and can lead to numerous complications including deafness, blindness, learning disabilities, pain, and cancer. Severity ranges from mile to fatal and there is currently no cure.
