WILKES-BARRE, Pa. (AP) -- Police have returned a life-size statue of President Barack Obama that went missing from its owner's northeastern Pennsylvania porch and was found a few days later reclining on a nearby park bench with a six-pack of Twisted Tea.

The owner, Tiffany Bruce, says she was relieved to get it back Thursday.

The statue, purchased at a furniture store last year, depicts Obama smiling and sitting casually, his legs crossed and his right arm flung out. Bruce decorated the statue as Santa Claus on Christmas and arranged pumpkins around him on Thanksgiving.

She says her five children love the statue, and she was startled enough by the theft to be hospitalized for a panic attack. The furniture store's employees had been planning to replace it with another statue for free.Owner Gets Stolen Life-Size Statue of Obama Back
