COUNCIL BLUFFS, Iowa — Police in Iowa say the case of the Hot Dog Man statue has finally been solved.

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.
