Council Bluffs man claims Hot Dog Man statue
COUNCIL BLUFFS, Iowa (AP) - September 16, 2011 (WPVI) -- Police in Iowa say the case of the Hot Dog Man statue has finally been solved.
The Daily Nonpasreil reported that the owner of the 6-foot tall statue that suddenly appeared near a bus stop in Council Bluffs came forward to claim it.
Police Capt. Terry LeMaster says the owner was able to prove the statue was his by supplying the statue's arms, which had broken off.
LeMaster says it was taken from the owner's yard by teenagers who hoisted the 400-pound into a vehicle, breaking off its arms.
He says the teens became "creeped out" by it and dropped it off at the street corner where it was later found.
