State police: Stolen M&M character statues returned unharmed
HOLMDEL, N.J. (AP) — Two statues of M&M candy characters that were stolen from a children’s concert in New Jersey last month have been returned unharmed.
State police had issued a tongue-in-cheek all-points bulletin for the 3-foot-tall statues after they were taken Aug. 20 from the PNC Bank Arts Center in Holmdel. Officials noted they were “fairly certain” the statues didn’t melt like chocolate.
In a Facebook post made Monday, state police said that the Mr. Red and Mr. Yellow M&M characters were “reunited with their twin siblings” at the arts center on Saturday. But details on where and how they were found were not disclosed.
Officials say the investigation was resolved “without the need for an arrest — a very sweet conclusion.”
