TOLEDO (WWJ) – A bronze statue of a little girl reported stolen from Fifth Third Field, home of the Toledo Mud Hens, has been found, safe and sound, in a police property room.
The Blade newspaper reports two Toledo officers found the statue on the sidewalk about 20 yards from its usual spot. Their report says they took it away to protect it.
The Mud Hens, the Tigers’ top farm club, noticed the statue missing from outside Fifth Third Field and filed a theft report.
The statue is one of four depicting children trying to look through knotholes in a ballpark fence. It’s not clear why it was unbolted and moved.
