Look Gnomes are know to wander. Obviously these 75 Gnomes want to be a the police station. The police can just put them out front and they will get the itch again to go see other sites. As for their original homes - well you take your chances when invite a Gnome into your yard; just bring another Gnome to your home and hope he wants to stay longer. If not c'est la vie.

Gnomebody ought to be ashamed for doing this. Besides, as long as we can entertain the cops, well, it'll help keep them out of trouble... LOL.

They really can't be lost. Didn't the government spend millions of dollars mapping the gnomes a few years ago.
