A Michigan town is facing a series of statue thefts.
First, it was the yard gnome. Now, it’s a chef wearing a Dooleys T-shirt.
A 7-foot-tall, 50-pound statue of a chef wearing a white Dooleys shirt was snatched from the rear patio of the restaurant, 12141 Hall Rd., police said today.
The restaurant manager told police the theft occurred between 2:30-6:30 a.m. Wednesday.
The statue is valued at $300, Lt. Luke Riley said.
Two weeks ago, a red gnome was taken from the front yard of a home in the 35000 block of Doyle. The only clue about its whereabouts was a note left on the front door that stated: “Hi, me and Leroy the deer took a walk to check out the area. Be back in a few days — Gnorman.”
I hope the statues are returned soon, and the thief includes a gift with the statues to pay for the anguish that the statue owners have faced.
