Stolen Nutcracker figures returned to owners
(2007-01-05)
(WOUB) - They missed Christmas, but seven stolen Nutcracker statues will be on hand for the next holiday season.

Police in Gallipolis in southeastern Ohio say a tip has led to the recovery of the hand-painted, wooden yard decorations, which range from two feet tall on up to about six feet. They were reported missing by homeowners beginning in early December.

Detective Sergeant Jeff Boyer puts the Nutcrackers' combined value at around $2,000. He says they were found Tuesday at a house southwest of the city and have been returned to their owners.

Boyer says no arrests have been made and the case remains under investigation.
