What they said:

"The theft from a flatbed truck was reported to police last weekend and artist Lawrence Noble, 55, of Crestline has offered a $1,000 reward for its return. The limited-edition bronze is worth up to $20,000.

"It's a real high-end collectible," Noble said.

The statue was one of four bolted to a flatbed truck parked overnight Jan. 17 at the Westway Inn on Colorado Boulevard. The driver parked the truck in the parking lot so they could keep an eye on the statues, police spokeswoman Janet Pope said."

It is funny how a stolen Yoda can receive so much attention.
Here is a picture of the Yodas before their trip.
They look sureal next to the large sculpture of St. Felicitas.

4x Yoda + 1x St. Felicitas = over 100k...
you think they would transport them with a little more care than on the back of what looks like a broken down truck.

did they even cover them? or was this a planned yoda-hit?

You know, this is exactly what bothers me about mankind.
The swiftness we all are at snap judgements.

"Yoda was stolen".

Cīmon, have you stopped to consider for a moment that perhaps it just got bored and went for a snack?:rolleyes: :cool:

My Theory is that Yoda was kidnapped and is being held for Ransom!
